Statement: decision on a trial of four-day week

Statement by Ed Whiting, Director of Policy and Chief of Staff, about a decision on a trial of the four-day week. 

Ed Whiting, Wellcome’s Director of Policy and Chief of Staff, said: “After extensive internal consultation on whether we should trial the four-day week, we have concluded that it is too operationally complex to implement. 

“We have learnt a lot through our consultation process and, although we not be trialling a four-day week, we remain committed to maximising the impact Wellcome can make in the world through supporting the wellbeing and productivity of our staff.”
