Interested to know people's thoughts around this?
We're in Financial Services and our Board are currently talking about this a lot (mostly due to the potential of increased productivity). Whilst I'd love to work 4 days a week and have much happier employees with better work/life balance, I can't help but be skeptical and wonder how you implement such a plan without impacting customers (a lot of whom make contact on Mondays and Fridays - the most logical days to drop) and just ending up more stressed on the 4 work days due to having to cram so much in due to the lost day!?
I can see how this would work well in some companies/departments, but I'm (reluctantly) yet to be sold on this as a company-wide initiative.
What other thoughts/views are there on this?
