104: Moving to a 32-Hour Work Week w/ Josh Foreman

It’s not every day we are turning to global debt collection companies for inspiration.  Today’s episode features InDebted CEO Josh Foreman.  Josh had a vision for creating a customer-centric debt collection agency and the organization has more than 2,000 5-star reviews on Google.  While we dig into some of the strategies and tactics that led to those reviews, this conversation largely focuses on the employee experience.  In September 2021, InDebted moved to a 4-day, 32-hour work week.  We provide a full roadmap for implementing an asynchronous work schedule in your organization.
