Managing Director Lucy Franklin discusses the four-day week with Employee Benefits.
“[The four-day week gives] people more space to step away from work and focus on their own personal wellbeing,” she says. “I would much prefer happier, healthier, more productive staff that we can retain, rather than those that feel unable to balance their work and life in a positive way.
We’re a European business. For UK domestic business, [a four-day working week] might feel culturally a little odd. For Europeans, this is much more the norm.
If [employers] can’t get the most from [their] people, [they will] not get the best from [their] business. It’s worth being bold and brave around those moves.”
