CEO of New Zealand firm that trialled and implemented the shortened week argues fewer people in the office means fewer cars on the road If we want to relieve the strain of a globally growing – and commuting – population, we need to rethink how and where we work.

How does it work? Organisations adopt a four-day working week, the daily head count in the office drops by approximately 20% and the number of cars on the road drops by at least a fifth. It’s a win-win-win scenario for employees, employers and the environment. Continue reading...
