3,000 UK staff to join 'world's largest' four-day week trial

Thousands of UK workers are set to join an ongoing four-day work week trial, which organisers say could well be the largest scheme of its kind anywhere in the world.

As reported by The Guardian, more than 3,000 workers at 60 companies across Britain will trial a four-day working week, in what is thought to be the biggest pilot scheme to take place anywhere in the world.
