Implementing a Four-Day Working Week


Course overview

Our business lives have altered dramatically over the last two years, with organisations implementing agile working arrangements where ‘Hybrid Working’ has proved a game changer. Now, employers are seeing a demand for a better work life balance from employees and alongside flexible working, there is a growing movement towards the concept of implementing a four-day working week.

Whilst a brave step, recent survey data * indicates 83% of UK employees believe a four-day week would improve their mental health, with 84% suggesting they would be more productive. Those businesses that have taken the plunge are indicating the change is resulting in greater motivation, wellbeing, productivity, staff satisfaction and retention.

Join us for an insightful and practical workshop where we look at the practical and legal implications a four-day working week could offer to business and to explore strategies for determining if this concept is an innovative step forward for your business.
