Spain To Roll Out Four-Day Workweek Pilot Program Soon
Spain people are known to be one of the most laid-back people in the world, and we envy them for that. To make things much simpler for them- the country set to introduce a new approach to maintain the work-life balance. Yep, Spain is planning to introduce a permanent four-day workweek. The idea was proposed by Spanish political party Más País, and it has recently received a nod from the government for a pilot program trialling the shortened workweek. According to the reports in The Guardian, president of Más País, Íñigo Errejón, said,
“Spain is one of the countries where workers put in more hours than the European average. But we’re not among the most productive countries. I maintain that working more hours does not mean working better.”
Spain Will Officially Become First Country In The World To Test This Pilot
In terms of this workweek program, the details of the pilot program are still begin discussed with the officials. Well, if you are wondering when will this pilot program be launched, then you must know that it could launch as early as this upcoming fall. With this, Spain will be the first country to undertake a trial of this degree. A pilot project like this hasn’t been initiated anywhere in the world.
