At the beginning of October 2021, Tricerat adopted a four-day work week for staff in order to help boost employee wellbeing. After 6 months, employees are thriving and each department has found benefits. Learn more about the current movement for a four-day work week in the US and how Tricerat's Support Team has maintained successful support for customers following the shift.
Will the Four-Day Work Week Become the Norm?
Workers throughout the United States have become very used to working five days a week, but more businesses are exploring a switch to a shortened work week. Though it has not officially become the norm, a California lawmaker recently introduced legislation to shorten the work week across the state to 32 hours. This change would be for all companies with 500 or more employees and employers would be required to pay staff time and a half if they went over the 32 hour limit.
Outside of new laws shortening the work week, many other companies have decided to make the shift themselves. Panasonic and Basecamp have both introduced shortened work weeks to give their employees a better work life balance and they're not alone. The 4 Day Global program kicked off at the beginning of the month wherein thousands of employees will be testing out a four-day work week over the next 6 months. With more companies and lawmakers getting involved in this shift, it wouldn't be shocking to see the four-day work week become the norm over time.
