Two years ago Sweden started its experiment offering workers the chance to work only six hours a day on full pay.

"During the trial all the staff had more energy. I could see that everybody was happy," said an assistant nurse working at elderly care home. But after the trial ended, she says she's more tired than before working the eight-hour shifts again.

During the experiment the nurses reported less sick leave, boost in productivity, and better health.

However, while the experiment could be considered a success, it was still expensive, and the less sick leave didn't pay for the extra nurses required. So from economical point of view, the experiment sort of failed.

The final report of the experiment is due in March.
