4 Companies with a 4 Day Week ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Before we get to the companies...

When people talk about the 4 day work week (32hrs), the knee jerk reaction is often:

"Ye but if you only work 80% time, you'll only get 80% output".

The knee jerk reaction is never:

  • Hiring becomes easier (fact)
  • Staff stay for longer at the company (fact)
  • Recruitment costs reduce as a result (fact)
  • Other costs reduce e.g. smaller office, less utilities etc (fact)
  • Staff are off sick less (fact)
  • Staff are more rested, and therefore are more productive (fact)
  • Etc etc

When you combine all these factors, they add up.

And when you consider the fact that:

  1. Humans naturally work faster when they have less time available (Parkinson's Law)
  2. Humans are off sick less when they work less hours

You realise that output isn't 80%... it's more like 100% ๐Ÿ’ช


When companies switch to a 4 day week, they typically make 3 changes:

  1. They "streamline" meetings e.g. reduce frequency, length, optimise etc
  2. The implement new processes
  3. They adopt new software

For number 3, this often means implementing new project management & productivity software.

In my previous job, we switched to ClickUp - it's a collaborative todo list, project management, content writing, knowledge management, whiteboard tool and more. "One app to replace them all".

And what happened when we switched? We were more productive, more informed & more organised - I highly recommend ClickUp, especially as they've added lots of AI features & automations.
