Interesting article from BBC Worklife

"Brendan Burchell, professor in the social sciences at the University of Cambridge, was part of the six-month trial’s qualitative research team. “The most common thing people reported was simply being able to enjoy a day to themselves without any time pressure,” he says. “Employees were able to have more time for life maintenance, childcare and simply to decompress.”"
