BRITISH firms are trialling a move to a four day working week with employees still earning FULL pay.
Several countries have successfully trialled a four-day system in the last six years, and now the UK is giving it a go.
Joe O’Connor, pilot programme manager for 4 Day Week Global, said: “More and more businesses are moving to productivity focused strategies to enable them to reduce worker hours without reducing pay.
“I could certainly see a scenario where within the next three, four, five years, this is something that moves from being a growing, but still niche concept, to something that is at the centre of how we organise work."
