Monday Scaries or Magic Mondays? Tight labour market calls for 4-day workweeks

Global News published this video item, entitled “Monday Scaries or Magic Mondays? Tight labour market calls for 4-day workweeks” – below is their description.

Instead of the “Monday Scaries,” employees of mobile game developer Square Enix Montreal have “Magic Mondays.”

The company instituted a four-day workweek out of necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic but now, the policy remains to help the growing company retain workers in a competitive labour market.

“It started a year and a half ago and it was meant to help employees cope with stress: working from home, homeschooling, having to cope with all that work-life balance in that new working from home situation,” Nathalie Gauthier, executive producer at Square Enix, tells Global News.
