NYC Mayor Adams proposes office workers return 3 days a week
FOX Business’ Lydia Hu reports that Kathryn Wylde, president and CEO of the nonprofit Partnership for New York City, says there may never be a return to a full five days in the office amid heavy competition for talent.
Over two dozen companies that have tested out a four-day work week have no plans of going back, according to a recent report.
Findings from the recent study "Assessing global trials of reduced work time with no reduction In pay" bolstered the notion that the 32-hour work week trend is gaining momentum. The study collected data from a range of businesses and organizations in different sectors. Participants lived in the U.S., Ireland, the U.K., New Zealand, and Canada.
Researchers discovered that the 33 companies that tested out the shortened schedule without a reduction in pay, were "extremely pleased with their performance, productivity and overall experience."
