Four-day week workers praise additional spare time

The world’s biggest trial of a four-day working week has been hailed a “major breakthrough” after most companies involved said they will keep to the shorter week following the pilot.The findings of the pilot scheme will be presented to MPs on Tuesday as campaigners urge lawmakers to give every British worker a 32-hour working week.The trial saw 61 companies across a variety of sectors in the UK commit to reducing their working hours for all staff by 20%, for six months from June last year.His colleague, landscape planning director Wendy Lancaster said the extra day away from work feels like “a luxury”, while client director Nathan Jenkinson said there have been “no observable downsides”.
