First Irish trial of four-day week ‘a resounding success’ (via Irish Legal News)

Ireland’s first co-ordinated trial of a four-day week has been hailed as “a resounding success in virtually every dimension”.

The project, backed by Fórsa and carried out in partnership by Four-Day Week Ireland, University College Dublin (UCD), and Boston College, examined the financial, social, and environmental impact that a four-day working week would have on businesses and employees in Ireland.

Following the trial, 100 per cent of employees indicated they would like to continue a reduced work schedule. Nine of the 12 companies involved are committed to continuing with the four-day week, while the remaining three are planning to continue but have not made a long-term commitment.
