Recording: Less is More: Moving Fast with the 4-Day Work Week, Mar 10, 2023

The 4-day work week is not just trendy—studies have shown that it boosts productivity, increases employee retention, reduces burnout—and yes, it’s a hiring superpower. But, the answer isn’t as simple as just cutting out a day of work. It takes structure and thoughtful processes in order to help teams not just work less, but work smarter.

Moderated by CNBC’s lead work reporter Jennifer Liu, hear from international leaders in the 4DWW movement and companies that have successfully made the shift. Attendees will learn about the ways these companies have been able to accelerate velocity while maintaining balance for employees, where the movement is going, their experiences on what’s worked, what hasn’t, and how they’ve improved their internal processes and built their culture along the way.
