Worker burnout has been a hot topic since the pandemic. All the changes the pandemic brought have taken a toll on businesses and their employees. Owners and CEOs are scrambling to find solutions to the issues that still linger, such as employee burnout.
Maybe you have heard talk about pushing for a 4-day workweek, giving employees 3-day weekends. Or you may have heard about 6-hour workdays, giving full-time employees 2 extra hours away from work every day, making 30 hours a week the new full-time work. Will either of these changes to the traditional work week solve the problem of worker burnout? Is this what workers want and need?
