Alan Jope (Unilever)

CEO Alan Jope has called a traditional five-day office work week “old fashioned” and Unilever announced in January that workers will only come to the office occasionally for social purposes and to catch up together.

“We anticipate never going back to five days a week in the office,” Jope said. This follows a headline-grabbing experiment at Unilever New Zealand, where workers were paid full salaries to work four days a week.
