So far, the majority of the firms reported it is working well, with 95 percent saying productivity has remained the same or improved. About 86 percent of 41 organizations surveyed said they would continue the four-day week after the trial ends.
The extra days off could help companies with recruitment and retention, and could also result in big savings for some workers, according to New York City-based 4 Day Week Global, a not-for-profit running the international pilot in conjunction with a think tank and researchers at Cambridge and Oxford universities. In the UK, a parent of two children would save an average of £3,232.40 ($3,665.56 USD) per year, or roughly £269.36 ($305.05 USD) per month, in child care fees.
The pilot also is underway in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the US.
