How to negotiate a four-day work week
For many who work full time, a four-day work week is the ultimate perk. Most of us get this only occasionally, when we take a day off or have a long holiday weekend, but not on a regular basis. In fact, a recent report from the Society for Human Resource Management notes that only 15 percent of companies in the U.S. offer it (that is, 32 hours per week or less). This is slowly changing, though, as more companies recognize the benefits of a four-day week: happier and healthier employees who are just as productive — if not more so — as those working five days.
