Rita Fontinha – Work – what science says

Rita Fontinha

Henley Business School, University of Reading

From The Conference August 29, 2022

“People wish to work less, but also to have more control over their time.” 


How do we free humanity up to choose meaningful work? Is value actually connected to working many hours? Who defines what is ‘productive’? Who defines what is valuable? Valuable for who? Do we produce more value on our days off? What do we do to each other, when some people have control over other people’s chance to choose the most meaningful way to spend moments, hours and lives? 


Rita Fontinha suggests a progressive implementation of freed up valuable time through a 4 day work week as a potential first step.
