South Korea To Begin Debate Over Four-Day Workweek
South Korea To Begin Debate Over Four-Day Workweek0Most countries conform to a five-day workweek, typically from Monday to Friday. However, there is a burgeoning trend to introduce a four-day workweek instead to promote better work-life balance. Some companies have launched pilot programs or small-scale experiments to see if this change would positively impact workers.

Proponents of the four-day workweek argue that reduced working hours would alleviate stress, boost happiness, and even increase productivity. For example, spending less time in an office could lead to more time at home with family. Research has shown that people who feel happy and fulfilled outside of the workplace can focus better in the workplace.

South Korea To Begin Debate Over Four-Day Workweek4However, opponents of the four-day workweek argue that the loss of working hours may financially strain employers. For example, some workplaces must be fully operational around the clock, which means they would have to hire additional workers to fill the gap. Additionally, from the workers’ point of view, some worry that reduced working hours would lead to less pay, which may require them to hold multiple jobs.

The debate over the four-day workweek has entered the national conversation in South Korea. The country’s 52-hour workweek accounts for 40 regular working hours and a maximum of 12 overtime hours. Changing this norm will require negotiation from different parts of society, including the government, business owners, and workers.
