Lots of discussion right now about firms trying to kick start their workplace culture.

I wanted to explore conversations with leaders who were leading experiments in how to make things feel different.

In what prove to be a pair of candid conversations I talk to two firms who are asking the question if workplaces can be more motivated by trying to vary the ingredients. John Sill tells us how his firm The Foundation are trying out Wednesday plus one, then John Readman tells us how Modo25 have become the latest firm to try the four-day week - with some learnings along the way.

Hello, I'm Bruce Daseley.


I just recorded all of this and I wasn't using my microphone.


So there you go.


So it should be therefore much more lucid than it was before.


Today's episode is a reflection of some of the stuff that we've been talking about on the


newsletter over the last few months. One of the things that really struck me as we came to the summer, before the summer, was that we were going


to have the moment where firms were debating, being more restrictive and demanding a greater


return to the office, and we're most definitely starting to witness it.


I've had a couple of radio stations contact me saying,


can you talk to us about how firms are demanding more workers coming to the office.


So we're definitely witnessing it.


And I think my response is always that we're in a moment right now


where maybe the ingredients that used to be the component of workplace culture before.


We are going to be challenged if we think we're going to do them and achieve the same result.
