Does Working A Four Day Week Work?

Seemingly not a day goes by without some reference to the future of work. PWC employees were recently branded lazy gits by Lord Sugar for being allowed to take Friday afternoon’s off during the summer provided they had their work done. PWC hit back accusing the media personality of being Childish but it got me thinking – can working less hours actually deliver more productivity?

Seemingly not a day goes by without some reference to the future of work. PWC employees were recently branded lazy gits by Lord Sugar for being allowed to take Friday afternoon’s off during the summer provided they had their work done. PWC hit back accusing the media personality of being Childish but it got me thinking – can working less hours actually deliver more productivity?

Meet Charlotte Lockhart. Charlotte Lockhart is a business advocate, investor and philanthropist. As founder and managing director for the 4 Day Week Global campaign, she works promoting internationally the benefits of a productivity-focused and reduced-hour workplace.

Charlotte is on the board of the Wellbeing Research Centre at Oxford University and the advisory boards of the US and Irish campaigns for the 4 Day Week.

Driven in part by a stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis Charlotte is deeply committed to changing the way we work today to a better, more inclusive experience for everyone.

She neatly sums up her approach saying Workers are paid one hundred percent of their income; but work only 80% of the time but provide a hundred percent of their productivity.
