Skipping Wednesdays at Work Could Be a Game-Changer for You AND the Boss

((VO-Employees/Bills/Calendar))??Working is overrated.

Yes, it pays the bills...but if we can accomplish the same thing in 4 days, that we do in 5...why not have a shorter work week?????((VO-Australia))??Apparently an Australian digital agency called Versa has research to prove that it’s time to ditch a day at work.????((VO-Employees))??The agency tested out 37.5-hour work weeks where employees skipped Wednesdays, for an entire year found that productivity rose tremendously!

????((VO-Job Interview))??I have a question- are they hiring?!????((VO-Typing Fast/Money))??According to ABC News Australia, Chief Executive Kathryn Blackburn said having these shorter weeks actually "renewed focus and intensity.” She went on to note that the company is β€œthree times more profitable,” than it was last year and grew its revenue by 30 or 40 percent.

Wow!????((VO-Brain/Stress/Employees))??And yes, more of a work-life balance is awesome but this 4-day work week could actually positively affect mental health as well.

Fast company notes that a New Zealand company tested it out for two months and found that stress decreased by 7 percent and overall work satisfaction increased by 5 percent for employees!????((VO-Boss Meeting))??Feeling like you need to march into your bosses office and insist on a four-day work week?

Hey you have extensive research to back up your argument!??
