Working for a 4 day workweek.

The 4 Day Workweek Campaign leads the transition to a four day workweek in the US for the benefit of all workers, organizations, and society. The 4 Day Workweek Campaign is the only US organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the transition to a four day workweek. It is led by a group of committed business leaders, advocates, and volunteers who are dedicated to transforming the future of work and society to be more balanced, healthy, and productive. Over the last two years, we have brought the issue in the US to the fore of the future of work discussion, helped recruit dozens of employers to adopt a four day workweek, and worked with policy makers at the state and federal level on four day workweek legislation.

In 2021, we launched the movement for a four day workweek in the US in collaboration with the 4 Day Week Global Foundation. Since then, we’ve seen a phenomenal rise in demand for a four day workweek in the US and across the world.
