One year after the conclusion of the world’s biggest trial of a four-day work week, a large majority of companies that took part were still allowing their employees to work a shorter week and more than half had made the change permanent.

For six months between June and December 2022, workers at 61 organisations in the United Kingdom worked 80 per cent of their usual hours — for the same pay — in exchange for promising to deliver 100 per cent of their usual work.

At least 89 per cent of those firms were still operating the policy and at least 51 per cent had made the four-day week permanent at the end of 2023, according to a report published by one of the trial’s organisers. Two companies did not respond to the researchers compiling the report.
