“Organizations must help their people eliminate distractions, inefficiencies, and administrative work to enable them to work at full capacity. This will create more time to innovate, collaborate, develop skills and relationships, and serve customers while opening the door to creative scheduling options, including perhaps the coveted four-day workweek.”
Joyce MaroneyExecutive director, The Workforce Institute at Kronos
“Employees are working harder than ever and at the cost of their personal lives. This study confirms that we can all be more efficient with our workday, that there's an opportunity to remove administrative tasks win exchange for more impactful ones, and that the traditional workweek isn't as relevant in today's business world.”
