Magyar Telekom (MTel) on Thursday announced the launch of a pilot project to test the feasibility of a four-day work week, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

MTel will test the four-day work week among four groups of back office and front office staff from July to October to collect information. Participants' base salaries will remain unchanged.

The company will also conduct a nationwide representative survey to collect employers' and employees' thoughts on the issue of the four-day work week. The survey can be filled in by anybody, but MTel will target business executives and HR professionals.
