The Case For The Four-Day Workweek

Even before the pandemic gripped the world, we were a nation suffering from unprecedented levels of stress and burnout. Now, nearly a year into our reworked lives — with remote work, childcare duties and nearly every other aspect of our daily routine completely upended — the stress of trying to balance our professional and personal lives is at an all-time high. But, according to “Thursday is the New Friday” author and psychologist Joe Sanok, there is another way. 

On October 6, Sanok will speak at LMHQ’s free fireside chat with people-operations expert Rose Chan Siow and lay out a prescriptive plan for a shorter workweek. During the chat, Sanok will cover the 10 tenets for a newly imagined, four-day workweek, and demonstrate to skeptics that work can be done differently. Will the change be permanent? Join LMHQ for this stimulating discussion and decide for yourself!

The virtual chat is on October 6 at 6:30 p.m.
