Two changes to the way work in Europe have emerged recently: Britain’s implementation of a four-day week, which frees Fridays from official appointments, and Spain’s menstrual leave for women.
Both measures are aimed at improving the well-being of employees and increasing productivity.
According to Joe O’Connor, CEO of 4Day Week – the project responsible for shortening the workday – as we emerge from the pandemic, more and more companies are recognizing that the new frontier for competition is quality of life, which One works with fewer working days and focusing on production is one way to give them a competitive advantage.
The project began to be implemented last Monday (13) across 70 companies in the United Kingdom and 3,300 employees will participate in a six-month-long pilot.
And there will be no turning back! The three-day weekend begins on Friday. This means: more travel, more families, more leisure, more enjoyment, more leisure, more sports, more parks, beaches and mountains…, in other words, more time for everyone. And Brazil, will it just watch?
