Wieden + Kennedy London thinks things have gone too far. The agency believes people who work in advertising are working far too long for their own good. Recently the agency launched a program that encourages employees to work just 40 hours each week.
As part of the plan, the agency has banned meeting before 10 a.m.and after 4 p.m. Employees are asked not to check work email after 7 p.m. and workers have been told the office closes at 4:30 p.m. on Fridays.
The program was designed and developed by W+K London Managing Director Helen Foulder. With the program, the agency hopes to make working at Weiden + Kennedy London appealing to current and potential employees.
