The Four-Day/Thirty-Hour Working Week

Duration: A OneDay Course

“What if we stopped celebrating being busy as a measure of importance?” Greg McKeown
There has been a great deal of coverage in the press (both national and international) about a move away from the traditional working practices of most businesses towards a more efficient and effective way of running a business based on the fourday/thirtyhour week and/or flexible working.

This course looks at how a business can transition to new working practices whilst identifying areas of effectiveness and ensure that there is no loss in overall profitability, or preferably even an overall increase in profitability, as a result of working shorter hours. The course introduces methods of evaluating the move towards shorter hours and the effects (both good and bad) of remote working.

We look in detail at how the fourday/thirtyhour week can help in the move towards net zero for the organisation along with many benefits.

In order to achieve this objective, we start with a new definition of work time which puts everything into perspective and enables new and innovative decisions to be taken about the effectiveness of a working day.

At the end of the course you will be able to take what you have discovered back to your
business and implement the techniques quickly and effectively.
