Second Thoughts on 32-Hour Work Week.

Work smarter, not harder. That was the philosophy of Ryan Carson, founder and chief executive officer of education company Treehouse. He promoted a four-day, 32-hour work week for his employees, embracing the idea that higher-guality work could be produced in less time.

That hasn't worked out. Carson got rid of the 32-hour work week in 2016. "There was a lack of work... literally a lack of work ethic," he told GrowthLab founder Ramit Sethi. And the malaise extended to Carson himself. "It created this lack of work ethic in me that was fundamentally detrimental to the business and to our mission," said Carson, who regularly puts in 65 hours a week now. * Source:
