Jason Brown

MIS Manager

ANZ New Zealand

I work 4 days a week - I have every Tuesday off to do the school run etc. and my wife goes to work. I am fortunate that I work in an area where it is possible to plan your workload so it was just a matter of adjusting the planning and delivery expectations on the basis that I had 20% less time in the office.

The biggest initial challenge was ensuring that I did not try and cram 5 days work into 4 days which would have required that I was working on my day off or evenings; this would have defeated the purpose of trying to spend more time with my children.
