The Growing Trend of the Four-Day Workweek

TV Interview for Global News on Four-Day Workweek, Remote Work. The interview was conducted in English and released in 2021.

Global News

The concept has been around for decades, but it has recently gained renewed interest. That’s partly because people are increasingly aware of the importance of a work-life balance, especially as we live longer and retire later.

Proponents of the four-day workweek say it could have several benefits, including higher morale and productivity. A four-day workweek also provides more flexibility for parents and caregivers who need to care for their children during the week.

Employers also benefit from paying employees to work fewer hours per week. They could save money by not having to adjust salaries and pay less over time.

I had the pleasure of talking with Global News to discuss this growing trend.
