What people are saying about
The Five Hour Workday
"Stephan has done an amazing job growing Tower into a dominant industry force. He is one of my best Shark Tank investments."
- Mark Cuban, billionaire entrepreneur
“At Tower Paddle Boards, an amazing real-time experiment is being conducted that has the potential to disrupt what has not fundamentally changed since the Industrial Revolution: the idea that we all, physical or knowledge workers, need to spend at least five full days of the week doing our jobs. Stephan challenges this notion and he has the evidence to support that a nearly 40% reduction in time working can come without loss of output. Read the book. See for yourself.”
- Thales Teixeira, Harvard Business School professor
"Stephan Aarstol's decision to implement The Five Hour Workday is a great example of companies putting purpose and people, above profit. When more leaders step up and realize that our jobs should be an extension of our values, not a place to go to make ends meet, is when we’ll see a significant change in how business is done. We share Stephan’s purpose-driven mentality at Gravity Payments. Our hope is bolder actions like this will catch on. Those at the top need to do the best for those they’re leading.”
- Dan Price, Gravity Payments, originator of the $70K minimum wage
