Future of Work - Conference

4 days of work is enough

Conference in French

The 4-day week is a hotly debated topic in Europe at the moment. 61 British companies have tested and approved it for 6 months. During this conference, José Salgado will discuss the results of the introduction of the 4-day week at Bizay: including the introduction of this model in his company and the quantified results.

The main impacts are as follows:

\- 83% of Bizay employees report spending more time with family and friends.

\- More than two-thirds (75%) of Bizay employees indicate that only a wage increase of at least 30% would convince them to consider returning to a five-day work week model.

\- After adopting the model, Bizay experienced a nearly 300% increase in applications received, and staff turnover decreased by 35% compared to the same period the previous year.

The following points will be discussed: 

\- The 4-day work week: What are the implications for the company? And for the employees ?

\- What is the impact of this model on productivity?

\- How was the reception from the Bizay employees?

\- His point of view as a manager of a European startup founded in Lisbon but operating on a 100% telecommuting model for its 200 employees, on the implementation of the 4-day week.

If you want to know more about how to concretely prepare it, and about all the subjects to keep in mind to not forget anything, meet on Friday morning on Tips and tricks to prepare the 4-day week , in the Hellowork room at 10:05 am.
