Zone Book Club: Work Less, Do More: Designing the 4-Day Week with Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Posted by Zone

Join us to hear Alex Soojung-Kim Pang discuss his book Work Less, Do More: Designing the 4-Day Week with Campaign’s Nicola Merrifield.

The 4-day week is no longer just an idea. Following successful trials in countries as far apart as New Zealand and the UK (where nearly all companies involved opted to continue beyond the pilot), research now shows that a shorter workweek benefits both companies and employees, increasing productivity, well-being and staff retention.

Work Less, Do More offers a practical framework for making the 4-day week a reality in your business, whatever its sector and size. 

Silicon Valley-based expert Alex Pang helps you:

-Identify the best pattern for your company
-Assemble your team
-Define what success looks like
-Think through worst-case scenarios and troubleshoot potential difficulties
-Put your plan into action

So whether you are a founder who wants to make the 4-day week a reality, an employee who needs to make the case for a shorter working pattern to your board, or a manager who wonders if this could give your team an extra edge, this is the only book you need to make the 4-day week work for you.

Don’t miss your opportunity.
You’ll also bag yourself a free audio copy of the book.
