If there’s one topic that divides the opinions of employers in 2022 it is the idea of a four day week. Globally there is a growing movement in favour of shortening the working week to four days with no loss of pay. It’s a movement supported by businesses, health practitioners, trade unions, environmentalists, academics, women’s rights and civil society organisations, and global advocates.
In Ireland, there is currently no official consensus on the possibility of moving to a shorter week, but there is a trial underway.
Last month, we asked our candidates how they felt about returning to the workplace and the results were very clear.
