As New Zealanders prepare for a four-day working week, more businesses and governments are getting on board with making it permanent.

The Spanish Government is offering to cover the cost of four-day weeks at some businesses.

It follows trials of a 32-hour working week here in New Zealand, by Perpetual Guardian and Unilever.

Four-Day Week Campaign spokesman Joe Ryle told Tim Dower workers on four-day weeks are more rested, and motivated.

He says companies trialling the four-day week are getting more output from their workers.
