Microsoft Japan tested a four-day work week and productivity jumped by 40%
A longer weekend, happier workers, higher production, just some of the results from a Microsoft in Japan.
For the month of August, Microsoft Japan experimented with a new project called Work-Life Choice Challenge Summer 2019, giving its entire 2,300-person workforce five Fridays off in a row without decreasing pay.
That’s right you keep your money, and can look forward to Thursdays.
Microsoft Japan president said ” I employees to think about and experience how they can achieve the same results with 20% less working time.”
Do you agree with this company? Can you handle a 4 day work week?
