Thousands of Employees Are Testing a Four-day Workweek

It's inevitable that bigger companies will begin doing this

Thousands of workers across the U.S. are enjoying their first Friday off for the next six months in an experiment to test a four-day workweek.

It's part of a worldwide effort launched by 4 Day Week Global, a nonprofit associated with the University of Oxford that helps companies execute and measure the impact of a four-day workweek. This year, 38 companies in the U.S. and Canada are taking part in the program, with most running from April 1 through September.

Participants and observers around the world hope that if this six-month experiment works out, a four-day workweek could become a reality for a lot more people.
