In Copenhagen, 14 workplaces are participating in an experiment to implement a four-day work week. The manager of Radisevej dormitory, which provides mental health services, believes that this new work schedule is here to stay. Employees will work four one-day shifts followed by three days off, totaling 37 working hours a week, but with longer days than before.
