Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Why not a 4 day work week?

Posted on | April 20, 2012 | No Comments

So who exactly is responsible for the rule that we need to work 5 days a week?

When we get a long weekend the euphoria is clearly felt.

So why not make every day a 3 day weekend?

I asked this question and THE ONLY people who were against it were business leaders!

The fear is productivity!

Is it possible that our business community is caught in 1900 think? YES!

And I suspect the mind-think lag is the fault of educators who are also caught in the lag.

We talk about outside the box thinking and action but how often do we actually get there? Almost never.

Manager NEED to care about there workforce!

Caring, simple respect for time in, could be a huge push for productivity and workplace satisfaction.

If workers are happy customers are happy!

Hmmm… I wonder who will be the 1st in the UAE to pilot the 4 day work week?

Here is the conversation from Nightline.
