The Four-Day Workweek: Why It’s Here to Stay

Every few months, the idea of the four-day workweek starts trending. And it’s not just making the rounds on TikTok, Twitter, and Reddit. Big publications like Forbes and Time also frequently cover the topic.

As more and more countries introduce bills advocating for the 4-day workweek and as more and more studies show the benefits of it, the clearer it becomes that this is not going anywhere anytime soon.

But why is that? Is the four-day workweek as good as people are saying? Is it something companies need to start adopting?

In this post, we will discuss:

The Benefits of Using Process Street Data Sets: A Closer Look at Their Impact on Your Business

The Benefits of Using Process Street Data Sets: A Closer Look at Their Impact on Your Business

Spreadsheets are so outdated. 

C’mon, spreadsheets are the same awkward, frustrating tool that never quite does what you need it to that I first learned to use way back.

You end up spending more time inputting formulas to make your data work than entering the data itself – and that’s presuming there isn’t a mistake in the formula that screws up your whole day.

Sure, spreadsheets are okay for some things, but can’t we do better by our information? Can’t we do better for ourselves? Don’t we deserve more efficiency, better automation, and time for that extra cup of coffee Monday morning? 

Of course we do. And that’s why Process Street created data sets

Who says we can’t have nice things?

Here’s what we’ve got:

How To Onboard Neurodivergent Employees (According to a Psychologist)

Being neurodivergent can mean many different things.

For me, it means struggling with anxiety and social interactions. For others, it could mean processing information differently than someone who is “neurotypical.”

In any case, being neurodivergent can influence our choices, decisions, and lifestyles.

This is especially true when it comes to career options. 

For example, I chose to be a writer for a reason. And it’s not only because I love to write! Pursuing this career allows me to express myself in a way I otherwise couldn’t. 

Unfortunately, not everyone gets the opportunity to do what they love, especially those in the neurodivergent community.

As it turns out, 79% of companies in the US believe that the need to train and support neurodivergent employees is much greater than their neurotypical counterparts. But around 80% of people with mental health problems and disabilities remain unemployed.

So if companies believe the support is needed, what are they doing about it?

In this article, I’m going to tackle the subject of how to effectively onboard and support neurodiverse individuals.

I’m also sharing some expert advice from Dr. Clare Mulligan-Foster, a chartered occupational psychologist with over 10 years of experience in the field.

So keep on reading!

Remote Team Bonding: How Process Street Connected in Portugal 

Finding ways for remote teams to bond can be a real challenge. So much so that it’s often neglected by leadership.

However, it’s incredibly important to make team bonding a priority. It makes employees feel more engaged and increases morale. This goes for any company, but it’s especially true for remote companies where employees have little to no opportunity to meet in person.

We at Process Street had the chance to meet all together for the first time in 2022. The bonds we made on a three-day retreat were stronger than the ones we made after years of Zoom meetings. And those bonds have changed how we work together. 

In this post, I’m walking you through what team building is, how to do it successfully, and how we at Process Street were able to fly our team to Portugal for a team bonding retreat.

It’s every homeowner, parent, investor, business owner, and employee’s greatest fear. Especially when you look at the lasting effects previous recessions have had on the economy. 

Recently, there’s been much speculation about whether or not another recession will be creeping into the economy soon, and how this one will pan out.

Remote Work Sustainability: Expectation vs Reality

remote work sustainability

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the world completely changed for a period of time. While it’s a time most of us would happily forget, many of the shifts that came about are becoming permanent staples in our society moving forward, particularly with work.

When Covid shut everything down, suddenly those who work in offices found themselves having to adjust to working from home. Some hated it and couldn’t wait to get back to the office, and others loved it, wanting it to become their normal, even post-pandemic. 

While remote work peaked in 2020, working from home and hybrid working are still at much higher rates than they were pre-pandemic, and there’s no sign that will change anytime soon.

This sudden increase in remote work has given us the opportunity to measure how remote work compares to onsite work in terms of environmental impact. In a time where the fate of the planet rests on this generation’s shoulders, we need to find as many ways as possible to reduce CO2 emissions.

However, despite popular belief, is working remotely actually better for the planet than working in an office?

In this article, I will attempt to answer that question. We will cover:
