Employees would rather work fewer hours than receive a pay rise, a new study has found.
A survey by Robert Walters Recruiters of almost 3,000 employees, including 1,000 from Ireland, found 91% would welcome the roll-out of a 4-day week.
A shorter work week was found to outweigh other perks such as remote working, while just 15% of respondents said they'd rather a higher salary than a shorter working week.
The four-day week was also found to help with workers' stress levels and general wellbeing.
"Employees surveyed said moving to a 4-day week lessened work stress, helped with a better sleep pattern and overall increased their work-life balance".
