Synopsis

Forget the old concept of the 9-5. In a changing world, companies around the globe are redesigning the working week to increase efficiency, health, productivity and happiness in their employees. Now you can do the same.



A growing number of businesses are shortening their working weeks to address problems with low productivity, poor mental health and unequal working opportunities. Workers are still paid the same salary for a four-day week and the results are revolutionary; so much so that a pilot scheme has recently launched in the UK, based on this model.



In Shorter, bestselling author of Rest Alex Pang studies these trailblazing businesses working fewer hours, where managers are reporting their teams to be:



- More creative in their problem solving

- Happier and with lower stress and anxiety and cases of burn out

- More productive



Pang will reveal step by step how they have gone about making these changes, the challenges and solutions and, most importantly, how you can do the same.

Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, PhD, has spent two decades studying people, technology, and the worlds they make. A Silicon Valley-based futurist and consultant, he has worked with gov- ernments and Fortune 500 companies; spoken at venues ranging from CIA headquarters to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to the Googleplex; and held academic positions at Stanford and Oxford universities. His last book, Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, is available in a dozen languages. Follow @askpang on Twitter and Instagram, or visit strategy.rest.
