The 4 Day Work Week
The 4-day work week was once synonymous with having a long 3-day weekend. These golden nuggets of time scattered throughout the year provided many workers with respite of having an additional day of rest. Over the course of the pandemic, employee welfare has risen in importance. As a result, many companies have been toying with the idea of a 4-day work week in an attempt to boost employee well-being and productivity.
According to Gizmodo, the United Kingdom has launched a pilot program to test the waters. Thus far, 86% of respondents have indicated that they are likely to retain this working arrangement. Not only does it signal that this indeed is beneficial, it posits that this could potentially be a long-term solution. However, there are many obstacles that hinder other companies from adopting the same strategy.
Even though a 4-day work week boasts many advantages, the main challenge in adoption would be that organizations are unable to gauge if 4-days is sufficient given the tight deadlines they face. In this situation, a viable solution would be to extract data to analyze if employees are sufficiently productive. Such data is difficult to extract without an extensive track record, this is where TRIYO can help companies.
With TRIYO, user and work data are collected in the background, on the rails of communication tools, while employees continue to work on their daily tasks and applications. TRIYO’s intelligent data platform aggregates user and work data to generate powerful insights into resource utilization and process efficiencies. Companies are now able to accurately estimate the productivity of their workers and ascertain if a 4-day work week is possible for them.
