Abstract:Working hours reduction is a phenomenon that characterized the global environment for several decades of the 1900s, only to slow down terribly from the 1980s on. In spite of this unfavorable trend, the literature has, however, never stopped exploring the effects that working fewer hours has on individuals, companies, and society as a whole. The purpose of this paper is to rely on the general base built by the theory about working hour reduction to explore the phenomenon from a team-level perspective and answer the following research question: "What are the outcomes of reduced hours on teams, and what are other variables that play a role?” The decision to study this topic was made since it can be argued that understanding how teams and reduced hours relate to one another not only contributes to the literature by offering additional insights on the case, but it is also resourceful to companies that would like to adopt a schedule with reduced hours to fully understand its implications on their teams.
