[20180722] 一周工作四天可行嗎

Work less, get more: New Zealand firm’s four-day week an ‘unmitigated success’

by Eleanor Ainge Roy @Guardian

紐西蘭一家公司在今年三月到四月實驗了讓全公司 240 名員工領著同樣的薪水,但每週工作 4 天 (32 小時),并表示獲得了無可爭議的成功。員工表示更能夠平衡工作和生活、工作壓力降低、整體來說生活品質得到了提升。

其中一個關鍵因素可能是該公司讓員工參與了決策過程,讓他們一起思考如何在更少的工作時間下完成一樣的工作量:

Helen Delaney, a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland Business School, said employees’ motivation and commitment to work increased because they were included in the planning of the experiment, and played a key role in designing how the four-day week would be managed so as not to negatively impact productivity.

“Employees designed a number of innovations and initiatives to work in a more productive and efficient manner, from automating manual processes to reducing or eliminating non-work-related internet usage,” said Delaney.
