Henley Business School hit the headlines this week with a brand new white paper exploring the latest trend rocking the business world – is a four day working week good or bad for business?
In first of its kind research, the white paper found that a four-day working week has not only saved implementing businesses an estimated £92 billion annually, but has increased the quality of life for employees, with over three quarters (78%) saying staff were happier, less stressed (70%) and took fewer days off ill (62%).
To mark the launch of the research, a panel discussion with Henley academics and industry thought leaders was held at Henley’s picturesque grounds and attended by journalists from across national, business, economic and trade media titles.
Panelists Adrian Moorhouse MBE, Henley’s Professor Karen Jansen, Former Chief Learning Officer for British Airways Nigel Jeremy and Green & Black's Co-Founder Jo Fairley joined a lively discussion, debating the business impact of a four day working week, and the growing demand for flexible working.
Convention rocking coverage was landed across national, trade and business publications including Independent.co.uk, City AM, Metro, Stylist, People Management, BBC Radio London and BBC South – with plenty more to come!
