In the news: the next chapter in the 3D Issue story 

Happier staff. 

Reduced burnout. 

Better productivity. 

For a whole host of reasons, the 3D Issue team switched to a 4-day working-week a short while ago.  And because there’s a global conversation taking place around new ways of working, at the moment, we pitched our story to the press. 

We used a variety of approaches including LinkedIn pitches, responding to Help A Reporter Out (HARO) requests, and good, old-fashioned direct email to journalists. 

We were delighted by how many titles – online and offline – featured our story.
