The workplace has evolved rapidly these past few years. Teams have adjusted to remote work, increasing productivity and employee satisfaction. Many are now asking the question, “What’s next? What more can be done to rethink – and improve – the way we work?”

There’s never been a greater opportunity to radically reimagine the workplace, challenge our clock-punching past, and focus our efforts on inspiring the people at the heart of our businesses: our teams. The 4-day workweek does this and more.

  1. Decreasing turnover
  2. Improving quality of work
  3. Improving work productivity
  4. Avoiding burnout
  5. Recruiting top talent

Join VBSR and TGW Studio (successful 4-day workweek practitioners!) as we explore the benefits, the barriers, and the practical steps necessary to implement a 4-day workweek. We will discuss public perception of the 4-day workweek, logistical considerations and solutions, and ways your organization can pilot the 4-day workweek in 2023. You will also leave with TGW Studio’s guide for business owners, HR folks and forward-thinking employees ready to try implement the 4-day workweek.
