Dear {{Name}}, 

I hope this email reaches you well. As I’m sure you’re aware, there is a lot of discussion around the benefits of the Four-Day Workweek, especially when it comes to productivity and retention. I wanted to open a discussion about our team moving to a four-day workweek on a trial basis. I thought this article from The Atlantic might interest you—especially as it includes case studies to a variety of industries trialing the four-day workweek with huge success. I understand that this is a big conversation, but I have some ideas on how we could track its impact and get overall buy-in from the team. I’m happy to lead the effort on presenting and implementing a successful four-day workweek for our team.
