In an article from Inc.com, Brooklyn-based crowdfunding platform Kickstarter announced that starting in 2022, it will become the first company to join a set of pilot programs called 4 Day Week U.S. The programs, launched in part by a Kickstarter executive, are a spinoff from 4 Day Week Global, a not-for-profit that promotes a shortened work schedule.
The four-day workweek has gotten some traction in recent years. With the return of remote workers used to the flexibility of their work environments during the pandemic, this may be a good time for some business owners to experiment with this concept.
While this strategy may not fit every industry, results from various businesses globally have remarked on increased productivity levels and better work-life balance for their employees.
