Mason Alexander – How our New 4&4 Working Week is Going
Last March 2021, Mason Alexander introduced a new working week. We work 4 days Monday to Thursday, flexible hours, and any 4 hours on a Friday. Andrew Lynch, CEO of Mason Alexander, provides an update 9 months later on how this new working week is going for us.
Overall, it’s been a huge success and it’s here to stay for the long term. But what are the benefits of this new flexible working arrangement?
Number of benefits that Mason Alexander have seen from it –
Well-being – staff now have a shorter working week and a longer weekend. This means our staff have more time to spend with family and friends. But most importantly, it means they can step away from work, get their heads out of their emails, and get some good head space instead.
Productivity – productivity has gone through the roof at Mason Alexander. The second half of this year has been our best half of business in 8 years
Autonomy – giving people autonomy around how they work and how they go about their day, empowers them to be better at what they do. We live in a world now where we shouldn’t be stuck at a desk 9 – 5. If you want to go for a bike ride for 2 hours or meet someone for a coffee, you should be able to do that. And that’s what we are passionate about and believe in greatly at Mason Alexander.
We want to keep pushing the boundaries. It can be hard to take risks and to try new things, but we are massive believers at doing those at Mason Alexander.
Because if you do and they pay off, they can lead to huge success.
