    The 4 day workweek. Four better or four worse?

    Businesses in 2019 are striving to better understand their employees’ desires and aspirations, to allow them to hire the best people and to keep those people content and more productive in the workplace.

    - Jo Fairley, Co-Founder of Green & Black’s Chocolate.
    - Adrian Moorhouse MBE, Managing Director, Lane4 and gold medal olympian.
    - Nigel Jeremy, Former Chief Learning Officer for BA.
    - Professor Karen Jansen, Our own Professor in Leadership and Change.
