BUSN 732 Business Communications
As a business student, Centennial College has appointed you to research the advantages and challenges of adopting four-day work week concept in Canadian companies and institutes. You will present the pros and cons of four-day work week as a short report, in which you will make some recommendations on adopting or not adopting the concept.
The first idea of adopting four-day work week was offered by the founder of Perpetual Guardian Company, Andrew Barnes (https://www.perpetualguardian.co.nz/)
This assignment gives you an opportunity to read, summarize, and analyze material to be presented in a short report. Specifically, you are asked to explore the company and the founder, read the assigned articles on the four-day work week and make notes on the advantages and challenges of the adoption of reduced work hours in each article. Then, you will use your notes to create a short semi-formal report in which you briefly discuss the topic at hand, evaluate arguments, and provide recommendations.
Use APA 7th Edition for this assignment.
Your report should be 3-5 pages (800-1200 words) double-spaced, not including title page and References list.
Upload an electronic copy to the Assessment Tab on Centennial before the deadline; the file will automatically be scanned by Turnitin. A 10%-per-day late penalty will apply.
Include a title page that includes your name, course code & section, the date, and your instructor’s name (correctly formatted APA 7ed.)
