Microsoft held a trial for a new four-day working week system in its Japanese office and the results are promising.
Throughout August 2019, the company closed the office every Friday -- five days of the month -- and gave full-time employees special paid leave to account for this.
It also experimented with other aspects of daily office life, such as limiting meeting length to 30 minutes and encouraging employees to make more use of its own Microsoft Teams tool to communicate.
The trial was dubbed the Work-Life Choice Challenge Summer 2019, and the results show that staff were 39.9% productive when compared to August 2018.
Microsoft also noted that electricity consumption was reduced by 23.1% when compared to August 2016, while the number of pages printed was reduced by 58.7%, indicating the environmental benefits of shorter working weeks.
