As far as work perks go, the four-day work week has been the most buzzed about offering since unlimited vacation. A temporary reaction to the pandemic? Initially, perhaps. But now, more and more companies are making it a permanent perk as a way to not only lure top talent, but to answer the call of employees who are burned out and seeking the answer to a better work/life balance.

The Wanderlust Group, an outdoor tech company behind sites like Dockwa and Marinas.com, implemented it as a trial in May 2020 and has never looked back. We asked Meghan Keaney Anderson, chief marketing officer, to share how going from a 40- to a 32-hour work week actually works.
