Several recent studies, including one involving almost 3000 workers in the UK, have shown that when companies switched to a four-day work week, workers' productivity, health, relationships and even finances improved. California Representative Mark Takano recently reintroduced the 32-Hour Workweek Act to Congress, which would change the definition of the workweek from the current 40 hours, if passed.

“While the concept of a four-day work week is not new, it's undeniable that there's a lot of demand and interest in this model,” says Doug Ebertowski, career expert at FlexJobs. The idea is gaining momentum, he says, and "this, combined with the fact that employers have become much more creative in their approach to attracting great workers, could mean we could see the four-day work week stick around for a long time."

Whatever the future may be, when this trend becomes the norm, some companies are implementing it into their schedule right now. FlexJobs, which focuses on remote and flexible jobs, has identified a number of companies that have switched or plan to switch to shorter workweeks. And they hire employees.

As for the trends on the list, "it's mostly nonprofits and tech companies," says Yolanda Owens, career expert at The Muse. With the exception of Panasonic, these are also small companies, "mostly under 1000 employees".

“I think it will be a little more difficult for larger organizations to do this just because of the scope and scale,” she says. According to her, the logistics of an organization with such a schedule for people with different positions can be difficult.

"I don't think you're going to see Amazon take this anytime soon," she added.
