Thousands of workers across the United Kingdom are set to begin a four-day work week trial from Monday while still receiving 100 percent of their wages.
The experiment has been arranged by not-for-profit organization 4 Day Week Global in partnership with the think tank Autonomy, the 4 Day Week Campaign, and researchers at Cambridge University, Oxford University, and Boston College, who are campaigning for a shorter working week without impacting wages.
During the trial run, which will last for six months, employees in the UK will work four days a week while receiving 100 percent of their pay with the aim of boosting productivity and well-being among workers.
Similar pilot schemes are taking place in Ireland, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
In the UK, more than 3,300 workers at 70 UK companies are taking part in the trial, Joe Ryle, campaign director for the 4 Day Week campaign told “Good Morning Britain.”
