Employees are concerned about salary cuts, employers are concerned for team management
Four-day work weeks are starting to get traction in various workplaces around the world. In Southeast Asia, where the five-day work week remains dominant in offices, Milieu Insight carried out a survey on how employees would react to the possibility of shorter work weeks and extended weekends. Milieu Insight said they surveyed 6,000 employees across the region to find out their perceptions on a compressed four-day work week, where they will be rendering 10 hours per day for four days a week. Based on the results, majority of the employees surveyed in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines showed favour towards a compressed four-day work week.
