Business Reporter speaks with Sandra Moran, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer at WorkForce Software about the growing popularity of the 4 day work week and other flexible work arrangements. Moran explores the growing popularity of the four-day work week and its potential benefits for both employees and employers. She encourages organizations to be proactive in considering this shift, pointing out that Belgium has already legislated a four-day work week, and other countries, including the United States, are taking notice.

Moran highlights a successful pilot program in the United Kingdom, where 92% of companies opted to continue the practice, resulting in increased revenue and reduced turnover. She emphasizes the need for a mindset shift in redefining units of work, breaking away from traditional structures to empower employees with technology and flexibility. Sandra addresses sector-specific challenges, suggesting that each industry should question long-held assumptions and seek creative solutions to implement a customized four-day approach, while still being able to navigate evolving scheduling and compliance challenges. Finally, she underscores the role of technology, including digitization, automation, machine learning, and analytics, in facilitating the transition to a four-day work week while ensuring compliance and productivity. 

“As that understanding evolves and companies become more comfortable with offering four-day work weeks, or other non-traditional work patterns to individual employees, they will have the tools available to satisfy their employees’ preference for flexibility and be in a better position to differentiate their organizations from those who have not yet innovated in this way and ultimately, comply with new legislation that may be coming into effect,” says Moran.
