Is a radical new approach to the working week the key to improved productivity and worker wellbeing?

Despite decades of experimentation with flexible working initiatives and work-life balance policies, huge swathes of people worldwide are still subjected to long working hours - a culture, say many, that leads to low productivity, poor retention rates and burnout.

Bestselling author and futurist Alex Soojung-Kim Pang has studied the trailblazing companies who have ditched the 9-5 and instituted a new, radical way of working without cutting salaries, lowering productivity, sacrificing quality or driving away clients.

But is it really possible for a much wider range of organisations to re-imagine and re-design the traditional working week? How do you compress the same workload into fewer hours? Does a shorter week benefit everyone in an organisation? What are the operational costs and how do businesses manage the cultural shift?

Join Alex Soojung-Kim Pang and a special guest panel at the RSA to hear the case for, and against, a revolutionary shift to a 4-day working week.
