What about Wednesday?
Wednesday is also a popular choice for remote working or taking a day off, with some companies openly praising the midweek break. One such company is Doximity, an online networking service for medical professionals, which introduced Wednesday as a telecommuting day companywide.
Co-founder Shari Buck discovered the advantages to “WFH Wednesday”, which allowed her to volunteer at her children’s school in the mornings while maintaining her full-time position. This, she notes, “leads to a consistent workflow that balances a number of planned meetings early in the week, a productive Wednesday working from home, and two equally productive and collaborative days on the tail end of the week.”
Why Friday may be best
Justine Roberts, CEO and co-founder of Mumsnet and Gransnet, says that “the general consensus seems to be that Fridays are usually best to work remotely, simply because it’s a popular day to work from home and – if only for that reason – few offices schedule important meetings right at the end of the week.” She adds: “If you’re a top-notch employer who really embraces flexible working, you’ll probably already be providing your office staff with voice and video-enabled laptops, meaning they can dial into meetings remotely.” It is no secret that Friday is less productive than, say, Tuesday, as workers tend to schedule fewer meetings. Therefore, it’s less of a risk.
