4 Day Week

9 Feb 2023 An Existential Crisis by David-John Wayne Bailey

An Existential Crisis

A four-day week captures the zeitgeist of the modern era. Even South Africans have lives outside of work and this juggling act has proven downright destructive for many. Work time reduction is not only great for people, but the planet too.

Like the five-day work week that was implemented a few decades, a four-day work week will become the norm for this generation. If you missed out on being the first in South African history to adopt this new trend, it’s not too late to be part of the next cohort for the June Pilot.

Work certainly gives us a sense of purpose, but it is not the sole purpose of life. The 4-Day Week phenomenon currently sweeping the globe gets us a step closer to answering that old, very personal question: Why am I here?

With many of us barely staying afloat with increasing professional and personal demands, I suspect any kind of change would be welcomed. A little less time at work may just be the key to unlocking the next stage for homo sapiens.
