The If You Could Jobs weekly: How the four-day work week can be more flexible than you think

If You Could Jobs asks studios practicing alternative ways of working about the many ways you can implement shorter weeks.

26 August 2022

We recently explored the opportunities and challenges presented by the four-day work week. Our research for the piece uncovered a whole range of variations on the theme – from team members taking turns to enjoy ‘Freedom Fridays’ for extra-curricular enrichment, to 4.5-day weeks, and nine-day fortnights. Here we talk to a selection of studios about their alternative working patterns and the challenges around doing work differently.

“Our teams are better rested, have learned to use their time more productively and come back energised each week. By sharing the rationale behind the time off, clients came to appreciate how we prioritised the work-life balance of the team — some even adopted the practice themselves!” says Erica Routledge, Operations Director at Accept & Proceed.
