Green Communities Canada is piloting a 4-day work week. For the remainder of 2024 staff will work a 32-hour week that will either consist of 8-hour days Monday to Thursday with Fridays off, or shortened workdays Monday through Friday.

“We’re excited about this latest HR initiative and eager to showcase our experience as we move through the pilot phase,” says Jared Kolb, Interim Executive Director of Green Communities Canada. “Our pilot builds on a growing international body of research that shows a 4-day work week increases productivity, enhances employee recruitment and retention, and allows for more creativity, focus and motivation.”
