On Tuesday 11 September, an article written by Visiting Professor in Industrial Relations, Gregor Gall, was published in The Guardian. In the article, entitled ‘A four-day working week?

On the reasons behind the proposed change, Professor Gall commented:
Not only do happier workers make more productive workers but workers also feel more of a commitment to their employer under such working conditions.
