40% of Companies Have Adopted a 4 Day Workweek

This week on The JSA Blog, we’re sharing some news from the Staffing Industry.

A new report from Ernst & Young has shown that 40% of companies surveyed have adopted a four day workweek. The 4 day workweek has been more popular abroad than in the U.S., but the report shows that recently it has been gaining momentum domestically. The report also shows that 70% of the companies surveyed have implemented a hybrid work schedule, with employees working remotely 2-3 days per week.

Another positive aspect of the post-pandemic workplace environment is highlighted in the E&Y survey as well. Executives are continuing to invest in improving the quality of life for employees, with 46% of surveyed employers planning to introduce in-office baristas. A third of surveyed executives are implementing or expanding their childcare options for employees. Companies who were surveyed are investing in in-office amenities in hopes that they will see more faces around the office more often, while boosting employee moral and camaraderie.

As we move into 2023, it’s most definitely a good time to be an employee. The pandemic was in some ways a vehicle to drive positive change for employees in the workplace. Employers are prioritizing quality of life and work/life balance more than ever before. For more details and to read the full article from CNBC.com, click the link below!
