At Least 3000 UK Citizens Participate in Four Day Workweek Dry Run

More than 3,000 workers at 60 companies across Britain will trial a four-day working week in June 2022 and end in January 2023.

The 4-Day Week Global will organize the four-day working week trial. Researchers at Cambridge University, Oxford University, and Boston College will collect and analyze the results.

As of April 4, 60 companies with at least 3,000 employees have signed up for the program.

According to the organizations running the trial, employees will follow ‘the 100:80:100 model– 100 percent of the pay for 80 percent of the time, in exchange for a commitment to maintaining at least 100 percent productivity.

Those taking part in the trial will work one day less a week while receiving the same pay.

Under the four-day working week trial, employees will be allowed to work up to 9.5 hours a day – the equivalent of 9 am to 6.30 pm, allowing them to compress a week of work into four longer days.
