4-day week: a revolutionary concept that could change the future of work
His organization, Perpetual Guardian, became the guinea pig of this innovative idea. He researched business leaders who may have tried the concept in the past but couldn't find any, so he knew there was a lot of work to do.
Andrew wanted to try the hypothesis to see how it will go. He got the consent of other people in management then shared the idea with his employees. Two external researchers were recruited to make the trial more effective.
They did it for two months. The result was outstanding. Today, Perpetual Guardian has implemented the 4-day week as part of their organization's policy.
News media in New Zealand got wind of the success of their experiment and sought to interview Andrew about his idea. In social media terminology, the concept went “viral.” Today, it's being discussed in 75 countries, and governments of several nations are considering making the concept a law. Whether you're new to the 4-day week or not, in this summary, you will learn its incredible advantages to businesses and the world at large, how to implement it in your organization, and basic things to avoid to make the concept work for you.
