Countries That Defy The 9 To 5


Posted by Insightlink on 06/26/17

Countries like Germany, Norway, Sweden and France are proving that you don’t have to work eight hour days or more to be productive.

Businesses in these countries offer alternative working options that aim to limit interactions with employees after hours, shorten the work week and encourage leave to be taken, and workers generally report higher levels of overall happiness and engagement.
To find out more, Instant Offices looked at different work cultures around the world and how factors like working closer to home, a decrease in hours and extended parental leave are challenging ideas of the traditional work environment.
