Following the government’s announcement Monday 16 March, we are rescheduling this event until later this year. We’ll be in touch as soon as we have confirmed a revised date. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The Big Debate: Would a 4-day week make Brighton more productive?
Productivity levels in Brighton & Hove are lower than across the rest of the region and competitor cities such as Reading, Milton Keynes and Cambridge. We have highly skilled people, but we also want a life outside of work and time to enjoy our incredible natural, cultural and recreational resources.
It was the churches and the mines/factories that gave us a 2-day weekend 200 years ago. Isn’t it time to re-assess?
When some companies are declaring a 25% increase in productivity and profits by paying for staff the same to work less - others call it a ludicrous pipe-dream that disadvantages our biggest service economy and small businesses.
What do you think?
Would a 4-day week make Brighton more productive? Or is the wrong answer to a much bigger question?
