Unequal joins the Spanish companies that already offer a four-day work week

The unequal fashion company is added from today to companies in Spain who already offer four-day work week, as Telefónica with a group that participates in a pilot project since October, and others such as Delsol software, pioneer in this regard.

In the case of Catalan company, employees have voted by majority to work four days, with one of them of teleworking, in exchange for a salary reduction associated with the adjustment of hours of 13%, of which the company assumes 6.5 %.

The vote took place on Thursday at the unequal headquarters, 500 workers had been summoned and has counted on 98%. Starting today about 500 people who work at the central offices of the brand and start this week short.

Since last October 1, Telefónica does, which is the first Spanish company that has established a four-day, 32-hour work week pilot program, 32 hours that are concentrated from Monday to Thursday.

A three-month period was established to collect volunteers and there were 153 adscriptions to the new model, which the company has called a bonus flexible workday. The change of day will not imply the corresponding salary reduction, since the company provides a bonus of 20% of that 20% that would be lost, so that the remuneration only decreases by 16%.

Although smaller, the first company that had already taken this initiative is Delsol Software, based in Mengíbar (Jaén). Your employees tele through two ways: Rid up on Fridays or, who can not afford it, rest a day of the week that is rotating. In your case, the retribution is complete and there is no reduction.

According to an ADECCO study last April, 74% of Spanish companies consider it impossible to facilitate four-day work week, although 14% believe it feasible with salary reduction and 12% if the entire remuneration was maintained.
