Four-day workweek trial launched in UK, with Morrisons participating

A six-month trial was launched in the UK to test the idea of ​​a four-day work week.

UK companies are expected to come in with employees working shorter weeks as part of the trial and they will receive the same pay despite working fewer hours.

However, they will be required to maintain 100% productivity for four days in a pilot program launched by 4 Day Week Global in partnership with think tank Autonomy.

British company involved in trial four working days a week

Six British companies, including Morrisons and Unilever, which are responsible for products such as Vaseline, will take part in the trials.

Brendan Burchell, professor of social sciences at Cambridge University for Subway: “With the increasingly clear social and environmental benefits of a shorter workweek, broader grassroots support, and technology available to sustain productivity, the time has come for more organizations to take the leap and uncover the nuts and bolts. .

“This scheme has tremendous potential to move from a conversation about the general benefits of a shorter work week to a discussion focused on how organizations can best implement it.”

The four-day work week will be tested worldwide

The UK trial will be replicated in the US, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Joe O’Connor, pilot program manager for Global 4 Days of the Week, said: “More companies are moving toward productivity-focused strategies that allow them to reduce hours without reducing pay.

“We are very pleased with the momentum and growing interest in our pilot program and the four days a week in general.

“The four-day week challenges current work models and helps companies stop just measuring how long people are “working” and focus more on results. 2022 will be a year that marks the future of this bold new job.”
