In January 2023, Imagine Canada launched a 6-month pilot project for a 4-day work week. Shifting to a 4-day work week is something that many people have been considering for some time now. The pandemic was difficult on all of us. Lines between personal and professional lives got blurred with everyone working from home.
Different models of 4-day work week schedules have emerged in recent years. Case studies of companies (among other examples, an Iceland experiment was overwhelmingly conclusive) that have adopted this model show that employees working 4 days per week feel happier, more energized, and more productive.
We are joined by two experts from Imagine Canada who will share their experiences so far in this pilot program, and the challenges and opportunities presented by this program.
