Many studies emphases that employees that reduced working time to 4-day’s a week, were ‘freed up’ to spend ‘quality time’ with friends, family, or themselves on a weekend. This included working (grand)mothers and (grand)fathers being more actively involved in children’s lives (sharing meals, attending day-care/school activities, talking and connecting, etc.). It also included helping extended family members with their needs. Family members appear to have greatly enjoyed the additional support and involvement, with some employees reporting improved spousal and familial relationships. Also because of having one more day off, employers got stronger relationships within the company.
