He'll start with an historical context, considering how the hours worked by employees have changed over time in the United States.

Next, Daran will talk about the reality of how most people spend their time during the two days they currently have for a weekend, which, unfortunately, includes very little time for rest and rejuvenation.

Lastly, he'll be reviewing what the research says about whether or not a 4-day work week is beneficial to not only employees, but also employers, then make recommendations for how you can move your organization from a 5-day to a 4-day work week.
