Could a shorter workweek be the solution?

There have been several studies showing the benefits, for both employers and staff everywhere, of a shorter workweek.  Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, is said to soon be launching a pilot model with just that for a select group of workers.

Amazon will be offering the pilot to a few dozen employees that will be selected both internally and externally, who will then be assigned a 30-hour, 4-day workweek.  The group will receive the same benefits of the full time employees, however, their pay will be 75% of a full time salary.  The pilot will be conducted amongst the company’s distribution centres and will include staff and managers under the same schedule.

The pilot comes at a time that the company is hoping to improve their gender diversity.  By cutting down work time, employees will have more time for leisurely activities, creating a better balance of life and work.  The lighter workload will allow parents more time to tend to home matters as well as alleviate some of the childcares needs that can get costly for many parents.  If the pilot proves to be a success, the male to female ratio could be improved across the company.
