Tampa Company’s Trial Of The 4-Day Work Week Reaps Rewards
A company in Tampa, Brick Media, tried out a 4-day work week program with their employees and discovered some positive results.
The trial went on for a 3-month period and affected 15 employees.
Jeff Kurtz is the CEO of Brick Media, and he said, “I think they’re (employees) happier than they’ve ever been. Every single person on the team wanted to keep it…I literally can’t think of a single hiccup that has happened.”
Not only did employees appreciate the 4-day work week, but productivity improved, and sick day usage declined. Overall, this really helped with employee work satisfaction.
Though they worked longer days Monday through Thursday, employees were able to use the 3 days of for trips, errands…whatever they wanted to.
Now the 4-day work week is here to stay at Tampa’s Brick Media.
I always feel like a 2-day weekend is never long enough. Maybe there’s enough time to do something fun with loved ones. Or maybe there’s time to catch up on your responsibilities around the house, but never enough time for both. That wouldn’t be the case if we had 3-day weekends, right?
