In episode 4 of the People Experience Podcast, we're discussing a very hot topic - the 4-day workweek!

By now, I'm sure you've probably heard a lot about potential benefits and ideas surrounding reducing our time spent at work. But a lot of conversations leave out the all-too-crucial practicalities of actually putting things in motion.

Someone who's on that journey is Charmaine St. John, Head of People at Hutch Games, a leading games company taking part in the 6-month, 4-day week trial currently happening in the UK.

I spoke to Charmaine about why they're doing it, the steps they took to prepare, how they communicated with people, and what the results have been so far…

And for anyone who is considering the 4 day week at their company, Charmaine kindly shared some resources which she has found useful:
