Wellness Company Launches “You Do You Fridays” For Employees

Ah, the elusive four-day workweek. That thing we all dream about but can’t seem to get our hands on. It’s fine, we can just work our lives away behind our computers instead and die of burnout instead.

Well, one company is making a change. Actually, 33% of companies in the U.S. are exploring four-day workweek options because employee burnout has become so bad, but one CEO is badass enough to actually do something.

Meet Sarah Robb O’Hagan, CEO of performance wellness company Exos.

After realizing how burnt out her employees and clients were, Hagan decided to lead by example and launched “You Do You Fridays.”

Essentially, if Exos employees are exhausted and need to spend the day contemplating their lives in the woods, they can! If they want to do “quiet work” that is undisturbed by coworkers, they can do that too.

There are only two rules to You Do You Fridays: one you can’t email or text any of your colleagues, and two, you can’t set any meetings for Fridays.

Hagan crafted this initiative based on the way that professional athletes train and recover. They train hard on some days and recover hard on other days, and the recovery time is just as vital to their performance as the training time.

If you ask us, it sounds like Exos employees are a bunch of Florida Stanleys.

After six months of implementing You Do You Friday, Exos reported that employee burnout dropped from 70% to 30%. Not too shabby!
