Survey finds shortened weeks are popular with employers – but may not be available to all staff
As demand for a four-day work week intensifies, a new report has found that four in 10 companies plan to implement the scheme in the future.
A survey by Resume Builder among 600 participants in the US revealed that 50% of those planning to implement the work arrangement will do it this year.
Another 42% said the policy will be effective in 2024, while eight per cent said it won’t be available until 2025 or later.
According to 98% of the respondents, their organizations will run a trial period before implementing the policy, which will likely last between one and three months (50%). Another 11% said the trial will only be less than a month, while 39% said it will be longer than three months.
“The trial will include all eligible employees according to two-thirds of business leaders, whereas a third say only a smaller group will participate,” Resume Builder said.
