Why The 40 Hour Work Week Is A Thing Of The Past
Ilya Pozin, a columnist on LinkedIn asks why we are still measuring creative output in terms of hours.
‘Working 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin,” at least so says Dolly Parton. Born of the industrial era, the 40 hour work week is now a standard the world over, but using time as a measurement of accomplishments is a relic, says Ilya Pozin. In an article for LinkedIn, the founder of web design company Ciplex argues that companies should do away with strict working hours and allow for flexibility to promote creative and productive thinking.
The key to Pozin’s argument is the connection between an employee’s happiness, productivity and autonomy.
