◆1: 1 week work can be done in 4 days
According to Robert Johnson, founder of Sawinery , a site for news and product reviews about woodwork, 'a week's work can be completed in four days, as long as employees are focused on their work.' ``Four days a week is more work, but he said,'' he said, although it can meet the need for socializing well, ``reviewing working hours, giving employees more time, and loyalty to the company. We strongly encourage you to be passionate about your work and responsibilities.'

◆2: Increased employee concentration
'Employees are becoming more focused,' said Neil Tapalia of Solitaired , which offers free games such as solitaire. At Solitaired, 'up to 10 hours a day, 4 days a week' is practiced, and Friday, Saturday and Sunday are closed. As a result of Friday's new holiday, communication and collaboration among employees has been splendidly improved, and team members have become more focused. ``When we do goal-oriented work within a tight time limit, 'I learned that I could prioritize and focus,' said Tapalia.



◆3: Employee bonds are strengthened
'Everyone feels happy,' said Willie Greer, founder of

Product Analyst , who specializes in reviews of electronic devices. 'The four-day work week has strengthened our unity,' he said, allowing him to take a breather and mitigate the effects of the global situation.

◆ 4: It is not fixed which day of the week is a holiday.
'The schedule is inconsistent,' said Taylor McCarthy Hansen, co-founder of marketing firm The Ecomm Manager, who worked from home and worked four days a week at the same time. Before the implementation, it was supposed that Monday to Thursday will be working days and Friday to Sunday will be holidays, but when actually implementing 4 days a week, it was rather a schedule of 'work on Saturdays and rest on weekdays'. I said that. In addition, it is assumed that the working hours per day will be 7 to 9 hours, but Hansen admitted that 'the employees who work overtime can be seen here and there.'



◆5: Can't delay work
'I can't put off my work anymore,' said Dusan

Gorgic , a health information website DealsOnHealth. DealsOnHealth is practicing 30 hours a week, 4 days a week, says Golzik, 'If you can only work 6 hours a day, you must work efficiently and procrastinate. I can't do that.' In order to maintain the connection between employees, the company encourages online activities such as role-playing games and chats between employees on Friday, which is an additional holiday.

◆ 6: Office is a waste of time
'Obviously, we waste hours in the office,' said Andrew Roderick, CEO of Credit Repair Companies , who teaches us how to recover credit scores . After practicing 9 hours a day and 4 days a week, the employees' motivation recovered and their mental health improved, said Roderick, “I tried working 4 days a week for just one month. You should look at it. You may be surprised at the results.'



◆7: You can succeed outside of work
'Four days a week gives me more time to do things that normally wouldn't be possible,' said Daniel Foley, director of Assertive Media , which helps optimize search engines. In fact, the company also has employees who create their own cooking blogs to enhance the content, says Foley, ``There are various forms of productivity, and productivity can be increased only by sales etc. It shouldn't be measured. 'I think employees are improving themselves' is another form of success.'
