There is already experiments of that kind across some europian countries. So far very successful and promising. I didn't work 4 days schedule myself, but my wife did it after she returned from maternity leave, for half a year. Know many people here who work this schedule in Germany, nobody complains so far. The only unfortunate is 20% less salary, but there is more priceless free time. It would be cool if someone from Scandinavia reply here to give us first-hand experience since they tried with 6hours work days (AWESOME!).
I live in Norway for 5 years and I can confirm that work life balance is phenomenal. I previously worked in Amsterdam for 5.5 years and I used to joke with my colleagues who would schedule a meeting past 4 o’clock that this would be unthinkable in Norway, and for the most part I can say that it is.
