Society should be moving towards less work, more meaningful work. Imagine how motivated you arrive at the office on Monday, if you only work four days a week.
Imagine having Friday to do whatever you feel like doing. This without a penalty to your wage.
Ryan Carson proves it’s possible.
People at Treehouse are maximizing productivity and meaning, and in result hiring (and retaining) the best talent is simple. One of their employees recurrently asks Facebook every time they try hiring him: “Do you have a 4 day week already?”
Recently these folks also took the bold step of abolishing management, turning the company into a flat company.
I’m a big fan of people thinking and acting out-of-the-box. These are the ones moving the world forward.
