Abstract:

This paper examines the relationship between the length of the working week and the performance of employees. It looks at the influence of job features like knowledge intensity, connectivity with other people in the organisation and standardisation; and characteristics of the job environment like stability, flexibility of working schedule and the communication infrastructure. The results indicate a positive effect of shorter working times on task performance. A breaking point of minimum working hours is found between jobs, only directed to task performance and jobs in which the contextual performance and knowledge intensity play a major role.
