4 Companies with a 4 Day Week πŸ”₯

Before we get to the companies...

Here's how to ask your boss for more time off (5 points to make):

  1. "I'll be more rested, more motivated and more productive. Productivity has increased in all 4 day week studies e.g. Microsoft Japan's pilot, UK pilot with 60 companies etc. Output doesn't drop, humans naturally work faster when less time is available." (you could refer to Parkinson's Law)
  2. "Four day week employees are less likely to switch companies - they stay for longer"
  3. "Employees who work less hours are are off sick less." (companies "claw" back some time here)
  4. "A 4 day week means more time for lateral thinking and problem-solving. As the saying goes 'creativity needs space'."
  5. "It's better for the environment. Reducing working time by 1% has been shown to reduce greenhouse emissions by 0.8% e.g. less travel, consumption etc"

Time is the only currency you can't buy.

So in your next performance review, why not ask for more time off?

Go for it - a (slightly) awkward 15 minute conversation could change your life πŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ


🚨 Calling all Java devs (who hate unit testing) 🚨

That's 100% of developers, right?

Well, advancements in AI means that manually writing unit tests is becoming a thing of the past...

For example, Diffblue's AI is automating unit testing.
