About Time: Conference note

Developing the case for a shorter working week

A shorter working week could provide the solutions to a number of the economic, social and environmental challenges we face.

Earlier this year, NEF assembled a panel of leading economists for a series of events to develop the case for moving to shorter, more flexible working hours. This briefing captures the main arguments made.



If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
