Could you imagine having an extra day off every single week?

Maybe you'd become the type of person who takes road trips every weekend — or you'd just find a better work-life balance and be more productive at your job.

The phenomenon of the four-day work week has swept across the world and country, and Ontario is no exception — many companies and even townships are jumping on board in an effort to increase employee wellness.

And it's not just the employees who are seeing the benefits.

The recruitment company The Leadership Agency told Narcity they've seen a 200% increase in productivity and a 150% increase in revenue since switching to a 4-day work week

What is the four-day work week?

The four-day work strays from the traditional model of eight hours of work five days a week and consolidates the same amount of productivity into four work days.

Some companies opt to increase work hours, like the Zorra Township in Ontario, whose employees work 35-hour weeks – just in four days instead of five.

Other companies like PRAXIS still work the same daily hours as before starting their six-month trial for a four-day work week, just with one day less.

What companies offer a four-day work week in Ontario?
