The four-day workweek is having a moment.

Several recent studies, including one that followed nearly 3,000 workers in the U.K., found when companies switched to a four-day workweek workers’ productivity, health, relationships and even finances improved. California Representative Mark Takano recently reintroduced the 32-hour Workweek Act in Congress as well, which would change the definition of a workweek from its now 40 hours if passed.


“While the concept of a four-day workweek is not brand new, there is no denying that there is great momentum and interest in this model,” says Doug Ebertowski, career expert at FlexJobs. The idea is gaining traction, he says, and “that coupled with the fact that employers have become much more creative in their approach to attracting great workers could mean that we may see the four-day work week here to stay.”

Whatever the future holds for the trend becoming a norm, some companies are implementing it as their go-to schedule right now. FlexJobs, which focuses on remote and flexible roles, identified a number of companies that have or are planning to adopt a shorter workweek. And they’re hiring. Here are 11 of those companies, including some of their open roles.

As far as trends in the list go, “they’re mainly nonprofit and tech companies,” says Yolanda Owens, career expert at The Muse. With the exception of Panasonic, they’re also smaller companies, “mainly under 1,000 employees,” she says.

“With the smaller organizations, adopting a four-day workweek makes sense because it’s easier to kind of put parameters around that,” she says. “I think it would be a bit more difficult for larger organizations to do that just because of the scope and scale.” The logistics of arranging that kind of flexibility for people in an array of roles could be tough, she says.

“I don’t think you’re going to see an Amazon adopting this anytime soon.”
