An increasing number of businesses in Sweden are said to be experimenting with six-hour working days.
Reports say that Toyota service centres in Gothenburg switched 13 years ago, and more recently an app developer and a retirement home made the change.
Employers across the country are following suit, according to the Science Alert website.
Productivity is said to be up compared to eight-hour days. Staff are reportedly happier, with more time spent outside work.
In return employees are banned from using social media at work; there are fewer pauses and meetings… the aim being that staff will be more motivated to work more intensively.
