Long-listed for the CMI Management Book of the Year 2021
'One of the most hopeful books I have read about the state of modern work' Brigid Schulte, bestselling author of Overwhelmed
Forget the old concept of the 9-5. Companies around the world are redesigning the work week to increase efficiency, health and happiness in their workers.
A growing number of businesses are shortening their working week to address problems with low productivity, poor mental health and unequal working opportunities. Workers are still paid the same salary for a four-day week and the results are revolutionary.
In Shorter, bestselling author Alex Pang studies these trailblazing businesses where managers are reporting their teams to be:
- More creative in their problem solving
- Happier and with lower stress and anxiety and cases of burn out
- More productive
Pang will reveal step by step, how they have gone about making these changes, the challenges and solutions and, most importantly, how you can do the same.
