Iceland recently made headlines following the world’s largest trial of a shorter work week when it declared the trial a success when they results showed workers were happier, healthier and more productive. At a time when the theme of work is focused on avoiding burnout and mental health issues, feeling happier and healthier while working seems like a dream.
