MS Power User reports on the results of a 2,300-employee experiment by
Microsoft with a four-day work week:
In August this year, Microsoft Japan ran an experiment where for one month

not impact the worker’s usual vacation allocation.
Some results were predictable. Workers were happier and took 25.4 percent
fewer days off during the month. There were also savings from spending less
time at work. 23.1 percent less electricity was used and 58.7 percent fewer

held, often virtually rather than in person.
