Number of Applicants Doubles as Copenhagen Tests Four-Day Work Week

Revolutionizing Work-Life Balance: The Successful Four-Day Work Week Experiment in Denmark

In 2023, the Danish parliament approved an experiment on flexible working weeks, with the proposal coming from the Alternativet party. Fourteen workplaces in the City of Copenhagen are participating in the trial, including Radisevej dormitory, which offers mental health services to young people.

The four-day work week is a response to societal and generational changes, as employers adapt to meet the desire for more flexibility from the workforce. Employees work four days and have three days off, maintaining a total of 37 working hours per week. The experiment has been successful at Radisevej dormitory, where shifts run from seven in the morning to eleven at night, seven days a week.

The transition went smoothly and has had a positive effect on recruitment and employee satisfaction. The longer working days have also helped achieve a better balance between work and personal life. There are plans to continue the experiment beyond the initial trial period, as it has shown positive effects on employee health and well-being. Similar proposals have been made in Finland, where there is an ongoing debate about shortening working hours.
