Finland’s new Prime Minister has called for the introduction of a flexible working schedule in the country that would involve a four-day-week and six-hour working day.
Sanna Marin, 34, who is the second youngest head of government in the world said it would allow workers to spend more time with their families.
She said: ‘I believe people deserve to spend more time with their families, loved ones, hobbies and other aspects of life, such as culture.
‘This could be the next step for us in working life.’
Before Marin became Prime Minister she held a position as the Minister of Transport for Finland.
While in office in that position, Marin advocated for shorter work weeks to improve employee rapport and productivity.
