’32-hour week’ ‘Mon-Tue-Wed-Thu-Daily’… Work-life balance startups one after another

Nov 10, 2022

November 10, 2022 ‘Working 30 hours a week’ and ‘four days a week’ are emerging as big topics in the recruitment market again. This is because not only the satisfaction of the employees who have experienced the work system is high, but also the productivity increase effect is confirmed. Some startups are using various work innovation systems as a sustainable growth strategy as well as improving work efficiency by introducing a 30-hour workday system. According to related industries on the 11th, StoreLink, an e-commerce marketing platform, has been applying a 35-hour workweek for all employees since May 2020. Since the working hours have been greatly reduced, various attempts have been made to increase productivity, such as voluntarily improving the workflow so that employees can perform their work more efficiently from the moment the system was introduced. Storelink only observes the ‘autonomous telecommuting’, which allows you to choose whether or not to work from home, and the ‘flexible working system’ that allows you to adjust only the core time from 1:00 to 4:00 pm (the time you must work from free working hours) and adjust the rest of your work hours. , ‘Work’ (a compound word of work and vacation) that allows you to work at a vacation home on Jeju Island, and ‘Culture Day’ that supports you to enjoy cultural life after working only in the morning on the last Friday of every month. did. The Woowa Brothers, who have been operating a 32-hour workweek system starting this year, have once again started to innovate in a new way of working. The Woowa Brothers will introduce the ‘autonomous workplace choice system’ from January 1 next year. It supports all company members to autonomously choose a work place where they can immerse themselves in their work at any time during work hours. Overseas is also irrelevant as long as the conditions allow you to work other than going to the office or from home. Working hours are also shifted to self-selection. In addition to the individual staggered commuting system introduced earlier this year, from next year, a selective working hour system as part of the flexible working system will be introduced. Based on the existing 7 hours per day (4 hours on Mondays) and 32 hours per week, it will be possible to autonomously distribute work hours according to individual work schedules and conditions within the total working hours per month. It is possible to work only 20 hours in weeks when the workload is relatively low, and 50 hours in weeks when more work is required. The Woowa Brothers plan to maintain their weekly office work, which has been in effect since last June, until this year. In 2015, for the first time in Korea, they introduced the 4.5-day workweek system, which starts at 1 PM on Mondays. The travel and leisure platform Yeogierae is also making various efforts to create a flexible working environment. Since 2018, they have been operating a 4.5-day workweek with no Monday morning shifts. Also, recently, as part of ‘Smart Work 1.0’, the Samsung-dong office building in Seoul was transformed into a smart office. There are no fixed seats in the smart office, but seats are allocated on a daily basis when going to work. It is also possible to apply for a seat depending on the nature of the job. Under the slogan of ‘Work Happy’, freelance market Kmong is innovating the working method so that employees can work happily. Kmong is introducing a 35-hour work week. There are also systems in place to maximize the autonomy of employees. Free commuting time The work method that allows employees to work from home only once a week and allows them to work from home is also being structured. Members can design their own work-life balance (balance between work and personal life) according to their individual work speed and environment. The employee welfare system was also prepared in a differentiated form. Kmong has a so-called ‘culti’ organization, a culture task force (TF) in which members take the initiative to create an organizational culture. Any member willing to participate can join the cult. There is also a ‘guild’, a kind of in-house club. It is held for one hour every Wednesday during business hours. The topics range from coding to documentary watching, games, and coffee. Endorphin Connect, a game startup, introduced a four-day work week for the first time in a game company last year. Monday is a company-wide holiday and works from Tuesday to Friday. They developed 15 games within the first year of their founding. Due to the high production efficiency, the system will be expanded so that employees can choose the days they want to rest in the future. The voluntary telecommuting system and flexible commuting time system are also being implemented.
