India, on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, stands at the precipice of a potential paradigm shift in its work culture. This study delves into the feasibility of transitioning to a 4-day workweek, each day consisting of 9 hours of work, a stark departure from the current 12-hour workdays mandated by Indian labour laws. The research investigates crucial factors including mental health, physical well-being, quality of life, and productivity within this context, shedding light on the potential benefits and challenges of such a transition. A snowball sampling approach was employed to gather data from a diverse pool of 350 participants. The study began with descriptive analysis, offering a comprehensive understanding of the sampled population. Subsequently, factorial analysis was conducted to infer prevailing trends and preferences among the respondents. Findings: The study's findings are compelling, indicating a substantial readiness among Indian workers to embrace a 4-day workweek with 9-hour workdays. The potential adoption of a 4-day workweek culture in India, featuring 9-hour workdays, holds the promise of elevating both the quality of life and productivity of its workforce. These outcomes align closely with the evolving demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the growing need for more sustainable and employee-centric work environments However, it is vital to acknowledge that this study did not consider the implications of salary adjustments, a critical aspect of such a cultural shift further studies are recommended on it.
