In fact, Unilever New Zealand had declared last year that it would begin an experiment to allow staff to work one less day per week backing the four-day work concept. The idea found backing during the pandemic with millions of people working from home.

Unilever New Zealand had said the experiment was a shift with the goal being performance being linked to output and not time spent. The company had declared it would be giving full pay to workers even as they work less.
