Microsoft Experimented With A 4-Day Work Week And Had Amazing Results

Hey bosses, take note of this one: Back in August Microsoft in Japan decided to test what would happen if they had their employees work four days a week instead of five.  So they let all 2,300 of their employees have Fridays off for the month. The results: Managers say productivity went up 40%. Even though people were working for less time, they were actually getting more done. And, that wasn’t the only way it was good for Microsoft.  People took 25% fewer vacation days than normal, they printed 59% fewer sheets of paper and they used 23% less electricity. Microsoft Japan says they’re planning to do the four-day work weeks again next summer and possibly at some other times too.
