In fact, some companies adopted this policy as long as 13 years ago such as Gothenburg’s Toyota, which says the change in employment hours has resulted in much happier staff together with an increase in profit and a decrease in staff turnover.
Leaders of other companies in Sweden have also praised the results after making the change. Linus Feldt, the CEO of an app developing company told the Independent,

The eight-hour work day is not as effective as one would think
To stay focused on a specific work task for eight hours is a huge challenge.  In order to cope, we mix in things and pauses to make the work day more endurable.  At the same time, we are having it hard to manage our private life outside of work

What do you think? Are you a business owner who would welcome this idea?
