How Great Is A 4 Day Week?
May 05, 2021
Hello and welcome to Episode 60 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we discussed a concept which may seem a little strange to some of you, the 4 day work week. Taking a full time role and getting the same results achieved in just 4 days, or 80% of the time.
Championed by Andrew Barnes, after successfully implementing the model during his time with Perpetual Guardian, we discussed the various models of the 4 day work week, and how this could look and work within your business.
Of course before considering a change like this to your workplace there are a few key things we need. In today’s episode we discussed my top tips that you may need to consider before embarking on adopting this structure in your business:
- Understand how to measure productivity;
- Build and nurture trusting teams;
- Trial and consult.
