The world's biggest trial of a four-day working week has been successful, with the performance of companies largely unaffected and workers feeling healthier and happier.

A total of 61 businesses across Britain took part in the six-month trial, which saw employees work 80% of their normal hours and receive full pay. Many of the companies reported an increase in staff happiness and a decrease in fatigue, resulting in higher productivity.

The trial also showed a 65% reduction in sick days among employees. While not every employer may be able to implement a four-day week, the trial suggests that it could be a solution to the UK's long-standing problem of low productivity, especially as companies struggle to attract staff and pay higher wages.

This experiment is expected to encourage more UK companies to adopt the four-day week, with the hope that the government will take an interest in supporting companies that wish to pursue it.
