Episode #93 – Demystifying The 4-Day Workweek : Banks Benitez

Today’s guest is Banks Benitez. Banks is the Co-Founder and CEO of Uncharted. Teresa and Banks discuss the advantages and challenges of a 4-Day Work Week.

Banks moved the organization to a 4-day workweek where people get 100% compensation to work 32-hours a week over four days. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many offices moved to hybrid or remote work, and some have started a 4-Day Work Week, many experienced the “Great Resignation.” Companies needed to think about what matters most to their employees and how they can better serve them. Teresa and Banks talk about implementing the 4-Day Work Week and what it has done for his company.
