The four-day work week could be the answer to employee burnout—at least for some businesses.

Nov 17 2021

The four-day work week could be the answer to employee burnout—at least for some businesses. According to a Eagle Hill Consulting survey of 1,010 employees across the U.S., 53% say they’re experiencing burnout with that percentage increasing to 56% among women and 62% among young workers, while 83% say a shortened work week would help. Some employers have started rolling out four-day work week programs including tech company Bolt and NY-based crowdfunding platform Kickstarter which have joined the 4 Day Week Global—a global effort helping companies reduce their working hours. Currently, 15 businesses in the U.S. and Canada have joined the six-month pilot program set to begin in 2022. A manager at 4 Day Week Global notes of the companies who are testing four-day weeks, “They have empowered their people to come up with ideas and solutions to change the way we work to ensure we produce the same outcomes over four days rather than five.” YPulse’s What’s Next for Work trend research shows that 39% of Gen Z and 37% of Millennials say shortening the work / school day is something employers and schools should be doing to help combat burnout among employees and students.
