Most companies pivoted to remote work at the beginning of the pandemic. And many people either changed or quit jobs. In the wake of all that, the idea of the four-day work-week is coming to the fore. Can a long weekend, every week, be the answer to everything from workplace productivity to fighting climate change? To discuss this, The Agenda welcomed the C.D. Howe Institute's Senior Policy Analyst Parisa Mahboubi; Andrew Barnes, author of The 4 Day Week: How the flexible work revolution can increase productivity, profitability and wellbeing, and help create a sustainable future; and the Rotman School of Management's David Zweig.
