What happens when you officially start the Pilot Program?

When your organisation decides to formally participate, the Pilot Program will launch as of November 2nd 2024, consisting out of two phases:

Phase 1: Preparation (3 months)

During this phase, we will help you choose a schedule that works for your organization, define what success looks like, create a communication strategy and help prepare you to deal with a variety of potential scenarios. You will know how to outline your proposed 4 day week and have a bank of written scenarios and respondes, metrics and KPIs to track progress, and talking points and emails for keeping stakeholders informed.

You will also get all the information needed to participate in our global research program so you can benchmark your organization for your own information and see how you compare with others in your community.

Phase 2: Trial (6 months)

During this phase, we will support you in redesigning the workday, improving technology use and the overall work culture. We will provide guidance on adapting meetings and tools, experimenting with new practices and updating daily calendars. We will also support you in reforming culture documents and practices.

Our program includes a library of constantly updated courses and facilitated workshops, one-on-one support with our lead team and weekly office hours on our community platform. With our support, your organization will have everything you need to successfully implement a 4 day week.
