Today's guest is Nicole Miller, People Operations Manager at Buffer. Teresa McQueen talks with Nicole about Buffer's 2020 4 Day Work Week Experiment. In May 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Buffer decided to experiment with a 4 Day Work Week. After a month, they felt the need to extend the trial of the experiment to December. Listen to the Podcast to see what they found out!
"We encouraged people to make it their own"
"We really tried to look at what is a creative way we can address it, make our team feel supportive, make them feel heard and make sure that we are focusing on the people and human component of our work place"
- Nicole Miller
