Why Having a Six-Hour Workday Is Good for Both You and Your Employer
A new study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found that productivity is highest when people had a six-hour workday. They examined working hours in several countries for 22 years.
Moreover, a consultancy company for the public sector in Sweden executed research with 68 nurses working 6 hours per day. These nurses have been working 6 hours a day since February 2015. After 18 months of working with six-hour workday, 77% of nurses reported good health compared to 49% nurses from the control group. Also, members of the trial group took nearly three times fewer sick days.
David Spencer, professor of economics and political economy at the University of Leeds, UK, believes that the trial in Sweden is small in scale and focuses on a particular sector, but this method could be used in other sectors with a range of adjustings.
