Alida Inc., a Toronto-based software company is introducing a new four-day work week for all its staff across several countries. The company has nearly 500 employees as was previously known as Vision Critical Communications Inc. It made the announcement on Tuesday, saying the pilot program will commence in July 2022.
Staff will be able to take Fridays off with the same salary and benefits. Officials in the company said the decision was made after reviewing employee feedback and was driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pilot program is meant to better understand the effects of a four-day work week and hope to make it permanent.
CEO Ross Wainwright said in a news release “the pandemic has been a real trigger for rethinking the world of work,… We’ve been listening to our employees over the past year and have heard how they want and need more flexibility to take better care of their mental health.”
