by • August 18, 2015


The whispers of a four day week have always been there, but is it just wishful thinking? For this dream to ever be achieved there needs to be some form of professional benefit– and not just that you get a three day weekend.

In the following article we will explore some of the most prominent reasons as to why you should take a day off your work schedule.

Improved working relationships

Many employees spend more time with their colleagues than their families, so it’s important to build strong relationships in the workplace. However, with you spending so much time with your colleagues sometimes the weekend and the odd bank holiday can be a welcomed break.

Through spending less time at work we reduce the likelihood of major disagreements, personal differences and other issues causing problems in your working relationships with colleagues. Consequently team spirit will be much higher and this will have a positive impact on the team’s productivity as a whole.

A chance to develop new skills

Gaining professional qualifications is a surefire way to propel your career forward and put yourself in the best position for higher-level jobs and promotions. There are countless professional institutions that hold day or week courses designed to expand your knowledge in different fields or professions.
