Sweden is on its way to becoming the home of six-hour workday, as more and more Swedish employers are abandoning the eight-hour standard. And guess what, this isn’t an outcome of laziness or a bid to diminish work ethics, but is meant to make employees more productive and boost their private time with families!
Studies have indeed shown that a 30-hour workweek has proved beneficial in some cases to both the employer and employees. Toyota Services in Gothenburg switched to a six-hour workday 13 years ago and reported higher profits and happier staff.
The change in working hours has, however, been implemented in only a few companies till now, and most companies in Sweden reportedly still follow the eight-hour workday. In America, employees work for an average of 47 hours a week, while the figure is lowest in Netherlands at 27 hours a week. There is no such standard figure for India, and it usually ranges anywhere between 40 hours to 70 hours a week.
