For many companies, four-day workweeks going from a pipe dream to a serious consideration

November 21, 2022

Many workers are gearing up for a shortened Thanksgiving workweek, but new data suggests a significant number of companies are considering shortening their workweeks on a permanent basis. About 40% of companies surveyed as part of the EY Future Workplace Index from Ernst & Young LLP said they have either started using a four-day workweek or are in the process of implementing one. The survey included more than 500 C-suite and business leaders across multiple industries in the United States. As we’ve noted, an increasing number of employers are exploring four-day workweeks as they seek to differentiate themselves in what remains a tight market for talent, despite economic headwinds.
