Work Transformation: The Four-Day Work Week and Remote and Hybrid Work

The landscape of work has undergone significant transformations, including the adoption of four-day work weeks by some organizations, the continuation of work-from-home arrangements, and a shift towards hybrid work models. These changes at work are relevant to sector employees and users of sector programs and services. These changes have a direct impact on how the sector should determine how to provide recreation services.

Canadians are increasingly seeking recreational opportunities at varied times throughout the day, benefiting from activities in facilities, placemaking efforts in communities, technology-driven options like virtual yoga classes at home, and recreation in outdoor spaces.

Moreover, the transition back to traditional work settings, after a period of adaptation to working from home, has had notable effects on work-life balance and the mental wellbeing of community residents. For many, readjusting to an office environment has presented challenges, reshaping not only their professional lives but also their leisure activities and overall lifestyle. This evolving work culture underscores the need for flexible and diverse recreational opportunities to cater to the changing needs and schedules of Canadians.
