Trials of a four-day week in Iceland have been hailed as an “overwhelming success” by researchers who report public sector workers were able to maintain or improve their productivity while also boosting their personal wellbeing and work-life balance.

Iceland ran two large-scale trials of a reduced working week with no reduction in pay from 2015 to 2019.
