Scotland is set to trial a four day working week, reducing hours by 20% without hitting productivity, measured in output per week, so that pay can remain the same.
With around 80% of employees saying they'd prefer this way of working, the campaign hopes to positively impact wellbeing and create a better work/life balance while simultaneously allowing for greater output and productivity.
What are your thoughts on the four day working week? Do you think it is a surefire way to boost morale and productivity within the team? Or do you think the risk of less work and time to service clients outweighs the benefits on staff wellbeing? To any Scottish accountants within the community, are you planning on implementing this work strategy within your practice?
