Working four days a week and being paid for five makes employees more productive, a study has found. During the course of an eight week trial at a company in New Zealand, staff productivity went up and stress levels decreased when staff were told to work fewer days. Andrew Barnes, the chief executive of Perpetual Guardian, a company which manages trusts, wills and estate planning, conducted the corporate experiment from March to April 2017.
