Polling carried out by Survation (commissioned by Autonomy) reveals strong support for a four-day week in the UK amongst the business community.
The full question in the polling from Survation was:
Q1. Some businesses have moved to a four day working week as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and have reported a boost in productivity. Other businesses argue that a four day working week will see their wage bill increase while paying current wages for shorter hours. How open, it at all, would you be to a four day working week?
Survation polled 515 business leaders on August 26, including owners, partners, CEOs, chairpersons, presidents, CFOs, CTOs, other chief-level executives, and directors.
