PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Portland, Ore. tech company that's instituted a 32-hour work week says the policy encourages employees to have that valuable 'epiphany moment.'

Treehouse put an end to the traditional 40-hour (or more) workweek and switched all the employees to 32-hour schedules instead. Even though their hours were cut, their pay and benefits stayed the same.

CEO Ryan Carson told NBC's TODAY show the change has actually improved productivity, despite the fewer hours people put in at work.

"We've proven that you can take it from an experiment into something that's doable for real companies and real people in highly competitive markets," he said.

"I think that when people aren't overworked, the chance for that light bulb or epiphany moment or whatever you want to call it is increased," added Treehouse CFO Michael Watson.

He said that ultimately, it's about living a more balanced life.

Treehouse is an online school that trains students for high-tech jobs like computer coding, through a series of courses led by an instructor on video.

Earlier this year, Treehouse was one of just 20 companies honored at the White Houseas the best in the nation for training regular people to become high tech worker

but AJ - you are not paid to create new stuff - just a tech running maintenance and handling trouble tickets. Not the same creative environment, your job versus what's put in on post #1.
