What is the 4-Day Work Week? 

The 4-day week enables employees to work four days a week instead of the traditional five, while maintaining full pay and benefits. The aim is to improve work-life balance, productivity, and overall employee satisfaction.

 

Why did FSET choose to implement a 4-Day Work Week?

This decision came to us based on extensive research and analysis of the potential benefits of a shorter week. This progressive step is in partnership with 4 Day Week Global, a committed advocate for better work-life balance, and Boston College, a prestigious institution renowned for its research and innovation.

How long will FSET participate in the pilot program?

The pilot program will run for six months. This period will allow us to gather extensive data and insights to evaluate the effectiveness of the 4-day work week. 

 

What are the benefits of the 4-Day Work Week for employees?

  • Improved Work-Life Balance: More time for personal activities and rest. 
  • Increased Productivity: Focused work periods can lead to higher efficiency. 
  • Reduced Stress and Burnout: Extra days off help reduce workplace stress. 

Read more about the benefits our employees have experienced.  

 

What has the impact of the 4-Day Work Week been so far?

Early results from the pilot show an increase in productivity and employee satisfaction. Additionally, the initiative supports broader societal goals such as community involvement and mental health improvement. 

 

How is the success of the 4-Day Work Week pilot measured?

Success will be determined by evaluating key performance indicators. Some of these include productivity data, overall business performance, employee productivity, job satisfaction, and retention rates. 

Regular feedback sessions are held to gather insights and adjust the pilot to succeed.  

 

Can employees provide feedback about their experience with the pilot?

Yes, employee feedback is crucial for the pilot’s success. Employees complete a weekly survey to provide feedback for the internal 4-day week working group and leadership to review.  

Additionally, we have had the opportunity to speak with individuals to get more in-depth feedback on how the pilot has reduced burnout and improved employee well-being.  

 

How will this pilot impact employee compensation?

Employee salaries and benefits will remain unchanged during the pilot. We commit to ensuring that employees receive their full compensation while enjoying the benefits of a shortened work week. 

 

How will this affect customer service and project deadlines?

We have carefully planned to ensure that the quality of our customer service and project timelines remain unaffected. By optimizing workflows and leveraging automation tools, we aim to deliver the same level of excellence our clients expect without delays.
