Summer Pilot for a 4-Day Workweek: How to Get Started

Summer Pilot for a 4-Day Workweek: How to Get Started
Matt Knox

The last sixteen months have been unusually challenging and exhausting for everyone, including Wonderlic’s employees and their families.  

But through it all, our teams have remained incredibly engaged, connected, and productive, continuing to provide exceptional service to our customers and candidates, advance our strategy, and move the company forward.  

As a way of saying thank you, we’ve decided to give our teams every Friday off from July 16 through October 1, shifting to a four-day, 32-hour work week for 12 weeks total.  

Our hope is that this extra free time will make it that much easier for our employees to rest, re-charge, and recover with friends and family, maybe extend a trip a little longer, or just spend a few days doing nothing at all. In addition, we’re setting up some Friday volunteering events for anyone who’d like to participate.  

As a company, we’ve always championed progressive approaches to building a culture that allows our employees to do their best work while living their best lives. Our PTO offerings and remote-first culture are steps in the right direction—and we see this shorter summer work week as another. 

Thanks for reading, 

Matt Knox 
President, Wonderlic
