The coronavirus pandemic has forced businesses all over the country to take a long, hard look at the way they do things. And for one company in New York that meant giving their employees an extra day off to see if they could boost productivity while folks were working from home.

They're back to work now but that 4 day work week is sticking around. The owners of TGW a social impact marketing firm said the four day work week embraces the idea that a happy and refreshed employee will be able to accomplish more when they're in the office.

"Productivity can be boosted by doing something like this, why wouldn't we," asked founder Lisa Kribs.

In case you're wondering the daily hours, pay, and benefits all stay the same under a four-day workweek and so do job expectations.
