Microsoft experimented with a 4-day workweek, and productivity jumped by 40%
- Microsoft found that implementing a four-day workweek led to a 40% boost in productivity, the company announced as part of the results of its "Work-Life Choice Challenge."
- The summer project examined work-life balance and its effect on productivity and creativity.
- As part of the experiment, Microsoft's Japan subsidiary closed every Friday in August, resulting in higher productivity than in August 2018, the company said.

I do not think this will work in the long run.
The only way to increase productivity is to create a pleasant working environment.

I have a Rostered Day Off once a fortnight, but I have to work a bit of extra time on the remaining 9 days to offset it.
Not sure it improves productivity, but I like it.
