4 Companies with a 4 Day Week šŸ”„

Before we get to the companies...

Have you ever wondered what day off 4 day week companies take?

Well, here's a breakdown from a recent 4 day week pilot šŸ˜Š

What day off


To take an extra day off, we still need to get all our work done.

That's the whole point of the 4 day work week - 80% of time for 100% output.

Now some natural factors make this possible (e.g. Parkinson's law: "work expands to fill the amount of time allocated to it"), but others can be engineered...

For example, if you are a Software Developer - it's a bad idea to build everything from scratch.

Airplane is one tool to help you build faster (sponsor).

Airplane allows you to build complex internal UI's in just a few lines of code e.g. build an entire admin panel to view / edit customers in just a few lines of code.
