Germany launches major 4-day workweek trial amid labour shortage

Recommended Posts

Germany is hoping that a shorter workweek will make workers more productive at a time when the country is experiencing a chronic labour shortage.

Germany has started a six-month four-day workweek trial that will allow employees at 45 companies across the country to work one less day per week for the same pay.

The initiative, which only involves companies whose work can be adapted to a shorter workweek, is led by Berlin-based management consultancy Intraprenör together with the collaboration of the non-profit organisation 4 Day Week Global (4DWG).

Advocates of the shorter workweek hope that working four days a week will make workers happier and more productive at a time when Germany is struggling with slower productivity growth and a labour shortage.

It doesn`t have a labour shortage, only businesses hoping to push up immigration so they can pay people less.
