Should the traditional 40-hour workweek be reduced? If the required number of working hours were to be reduced to 30 hours how would it impact your business? This subject has been up for debate over the last few years. How would your business run if your employees worked 10 hours less per week?
One of the arguments in favor of a shorter workweek is that employees working fewer hours tend to be more productive. Germany already has one of the world’s shortest workweeks. There appears to be no detriment to the German economy when fewer hours are worked. If it is true that workers tend to be more productive due to less stress, it may follow that your workforce could achieve just as much in a shorter time period.
