As organisations navigate a rapidly evolving business landscape, this topic delves into the increasingly popular concept of condensing the traditional five-day workweek into four days. In this session, we will explore the historical context, economic implications, societal benefits, and practical considerations surrounding transitioning to a shorter workweek.

This topic at ICE 2024 will involve us tackling one of the most debated topics in contemporary workplace culture. With a blend of empirical research, case studies, and expert analysis, this session will explore whether transitioning from the traditional five-day workweek to a condensed four-day model is feasible and beneficial for individuals, businesses, and society.

It will be an opportunity for delegates to challenge themselves to rethink conventional notions of work and productivity and to consider whether a four-day workweek is not only possible but also desirable in today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving world. Whether as a blueprint for organisational change or a catalyst for broader societal dialogue, this session will offer a compelling exploration of an idea whose time may have finally come.
