UK.-based Esports and Crypto organisation Division 6ix has implemented from February 7th, 2022 a four-day workweek. The company joins a growing group of organizations that have begun testing out the potential benefits of reduced work time requirements.
The Four Day Workweek
The four-day workweek is a work philosophy that has been growing in popularity throughout the U.K. and the rest of Europe. Some companies choose to have employees split 40 hours of work over those four days while others keep the standard eight hours per day work schedule for the four days.
Other countries outside of the U.K. in Europe operate on shorter workweeks or shorter weekdays and are unaccustomed to the 9 to 5, Monday through Friday structure that’s standard in the U.K. Employees in Germany, for example, work an average of 26 hours per week. This model allows for families to spend more time together, and many organizations have started implementing this model of a workweek in hopes of creating happier and more loyal employees that continue to produce high-quality work.
Division 6ix’s new policy comes shortly after the announcement of a U.K. trial in which 30 companies will test the 32-hour, four-day workweek for six months. The trial will start in June 2022, and the companies will use this opportunity to measure any changes in productivity and employee wellbeing. In the case of Division 6ix, employees will be asked to work Monday through Thursday instead of Monday through Friday. The benefits of a four-day workweek can include:
- Increased productivity
- Less time off requested
- Increased employee satisfaction
- Less time commuting
- Reduced stress
- More time for important errands
