How would you like to work four days a week? Don’t be surprised if it happens. Research is showing that a shorter work week may be more productive and make more sense than 40 hours.
Workforce Institute did a study and it turns out that 45% those asked say that, if they worked uninterrupted, they could could do their jobs in less than five hours a day. Working interrupted is tricky, but it can be done. Modern distractions would have to be gotten rid of.
There used to be a clean line between life and work, but not anymore and it comes in handy with the possibility of a four day work week. One company tried a shorter work week and the productivity was so high that it’s now a permanent schedule.
The Workforce Institute study revealed some other nuggets of info that may help the cause. 34-percent of workers told the Workforce Institute that’s the schedule they’d pick if their pay didn’t change, compared to 20-percent who said they’d work three days a week, and 28-percent said they’d work the traditional five-day week.
The crazy part is, some would take a pay cut for more time home, 24% of U.S. respondents said they’d take a 20% salary cut to work one day less per week.
Here’s to the future (without a pay cut). Read more here:http://time.com/money/5383502/short-work-week-how-many-hours/
