The Four Day Week campaign is soon to launch the results of Ireland’s first four-day week pilot programme.
In the last year, seventeen Irish employments have participated in the trial, as part of a global pilot scheme.
The project, carried out in partnership by Four Day Week Ireland, University College Dublin, and Boston College looked at the financial, social, and environmental impact a four-day working week would have on businesses.
Although there have been several four-day week trials in organisations across the globe, this project is the first large scale research into a shorter working week, replicated across companies of different sizes, in various sectors, across a number of countries.
Results of the experience of Irish participants in the pilot programme will be presented by Orla Kelly (UCD), on Wednesday 30th November, at the Dublin Chamber of Commerce at 11.30am.
The event, hosted by Four-Day Week Ireland, will include presentations from a number of the Irish pilot participants, in addition to contributions from the Four-Day Week Global campaign.
