Flirting with a Shorter Work Day

Breaking news: Our progressive friends over in Sweden are currently flirting with new working practices that include a six hour work day.

“The eight-hour work day is not as effective as one would think,” says Linus Feldt, CEO of Filimundus, a Stockholm based app developer. “To stay focused on a specific work task for eight hours is a huge challenge.

Make. Work. Better.
