Four-day working week pilot launched in UK
The Metro says a six-month trial period of a four-day working week has today been launched across the UK.
Some 30 British companies are expected to take part in the pilot, which will see no loss in pay for employees working one fewer day a week.
Instead they will be asked to maintain 100% productivity for 80% of their time.
The pilot has been launched by 4 Day Week Global in partnership with think tank Autonomy, the 4 Day Week UK Campaign and researchers at Cambridge University, Oxford University and Boston College.
