Alumni Christmas reception 2022

All we want for Christmas is a four-day workweek?

As the year draws to an end, we’d like to invite you to our traditional Christmas reception at the British Embassy. Join this year’s reception together with your significant other to enjoy warm British hospitality, get together with well-known and new friends from within the alumni network and participate in a lively discussion about the four-day work week!

The four-day workweek is a popular topic of discussion among businesses. Ben Laker, Professor of Leadership at Henley Business School, will join us and discuss how the four-day workweek can benefit businesses of all sizes and industries. He will dispel common misconceptions about the implementation of shorter workweeks and provide practical tips for business leaders interested in transitioning to a four-day workweek model within Finland.

In addition, Ben will address the challenges that businesses may face when making the switch and offer solutions for overcoming these obstacles. His talk will be of particular interest to business leaders looking for ways to improve employee productivity and satisfaction, as well as those interested in reducing their environmental impact. Given the current state of the global economy, Ben’s talk will also be timely for businesses struggling to stay afloat and looking for ways to cut costs.

During the evening, we’ll treat you with British Christmas delights, including drinks and snacks, and some lovely music performance.

The entrance fee for the Christmas reception is 45€/person, and the dress code is business/festive.

Professor Ben Laker is a renowned scholar and university educator who provides academic direction and leadership to research, executive development and education within the subject area of leadership at Henley Business School. His 2019 Harvard Business Review article titled Will the 4-Day workweek take hold in Europe? garnered critical acclaim from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal for accurately foretelling the continent’s widespread adoption of shorter working weeks. Ben has since advised HM Treasury and attended five United States House Select Committee hearings that supplied public policy recommendations to the United States Congress and the Biden-Harris administration.
