Company Finds Success With A 4-Day Work Week
The dream of a four day work week is closer to reality.
A company in New Zealand switched to a four day work week back in March.
Employees still worked eight hours days, but were paid for a full 40 hours a week.
Workers loved it: they came back from their 3-day weekend more energized.
The company also loved it: productivity shot up, people took fewer breaks and meetings that once lasted hours suddenly wrapped up in minutes.
It was only a two month experiment, but it was such a success that now the boss wants to make it permanent.
So how much time do we actually waste at work?
A recent study by Salary.com found 89-percent of all employees waste at-least some time at work.
About a third of us waste around a half hour, but 10-percent waste 3 hours or more each day.
