Sweden planning on switching to 6 hour/day jobs

Post by Admin™ on Wed Oct 07, 2015 1:15 am


Sweden’s bid to switch entirely to a six-hour work day appears to be gaining steam.

Many businesses in the country are having employees work fewer hours with the goal of becoming more productive. The move also comes in a bid to boost workers’ private time with family.

Toyota centers in the country apparently made the change 13 years ago. Last year, businesses in Stockholm also introduced a six-hour work day. In an interview with Fast Company, Linus Feldt, CEO of app developer Filimundus, said, “The eight-hour work day is not as effective as one would think.”

Feldt continued, “To stay focused on a specific work task for eight hours is a huge challenge. In order to cope, we mix in things and pauses to make the work day more endurable. At the same time, we are having it hard to manage our private life outside of work.”
