Working life Many are now calling for shorter working hours, but several studies show that a shorter working week does not significantly increase jobs

The Swedish-American entrepreneur hoped to improve the well-being and productivity of the employees of his young biotechnology company Cellink Life Sciences by cutting the company’s normal daily working hours from eight hours to six. The goal was to keep the production volume the same or even increase it.
