Amazon to pilot 30-hour work week
40% of millennials would ideally like to work part-time for one employer. The main reason for this is so that they have time to pursue other interests and projects. “Research has shown that young adults aren’t necessarily interested in the traditional workplace environment and that their work-life balance is crucial to them,” said Jacqueline Breslin, Director of Human Capital Services at TriNet, an HR solutions company. “We’ve also seen that younger workers who are still in school for a master’s degree want the ability to balance their education with their work lives and this is a great compromise.” The response, however, has been mixed. Some believe this is simply a PR angle for Amazon, following the terrible publicity they received from an article in New York Times towards the end of last year. The story portrayed Amazon as an unforgiving environment where 60-hour plus work schedules and employees “crying at their desks” was the norm. Others think this is a move in the right direction and the clearest indicator yet that the world of work is evolving.]]>
