With the number of South African pilot participants steadily increasing (at the time of writing it had already exceeded those of Ireland), you may be wondering why local companies are so eager to sign up. The latest findings from the US and Ireland surveys released in November, paint a clearer picture.
Of the 33 companies involved, 903 employees provided some valuable data that helped to convince local bosses to join 4 Day Week SA. Company performance yielded an average of 7.6 out of 10 with revenue increasing to 37.55% compared to the same six-month period in 2021.
One of the key reasons to go into business is to turn a profit and while the results speak for themselves, I value the personal cost above all else. This was delivered in the form of employees having more time for personal maintenance, hobbies and extended time with loved ones.
Regardless of whether your boss signed up for altruistic or capitalistic reasons, the local pilot presents a win-win situation. While a more balanced mix of work and play sounds like a utopian ideal, South African pioneer pilot participants may be able to make it a reality soon.
