>Microsoft tries 4 day week
微软日本试行4天工作制
A growing number of smaller companies are adopting a four-day workweek.
越来越多中小公司开始采用四天工作制。
Now the results of a recent trial at Microsoft suggest it could work even for the biggest businesses.
如今微软的试验结果显示,就算在大企业也能见效。
The company introduced a program this summer in Japan called the "Work Life Choice Challenge," which shut down its offices every Friday in August and gave all employees an extra day off each week.
今夏微软公司在日本引进了一个名为"工作生活选择挑战"的项目,8月的每个周五都会关闭办公室,让所有员工每周都能多放一天假。
The results were promising: While the amount of time spent at work was cut dramatically, productivity - measured by sales per employee - went up by almost 40% compared to the same period the previous year, the company said in a statement last week.
结果还不错:微软上周在一份声明中说,尽管工作时间大幅缩短,但工作效率(按照每位员工的销售业绩来计算)同比提高近40%。
By shutting down earlier each week, the company was also able to save on other resources, such as electricity.
通过每周提早关门的举措,微软公司还能节省电力等其他资源。
Microsoft says it will conduct another experiment in Japan later this year.
微软表示,今年晚些时候将在日本开展另一个试验。
It plans to ask employees to come up with new measures to improve work-life balance and efficiency, and will also ask other companies to join the initiative.
微软计划请员工提出既能改善工作生活平衡又能提高工作效率的新举措,并将邀请其他公司加入这一项目。

>China is racing ahead in 5G
我国5G用户将超全球1/3
China is expected to account for at least one-third of global 5G users by 2025, said Zhao Dachun, vice-general manager of a major telecom operator, China Mobile. Zhao said by 2025, a total of 409 telecom operators all over the world will offer 5G commercial services to 1.6 billion people in 117 countries and regions.
国内主要电信运营商中国移动的副总经理赵大春近日表示,到2025年,我国5G用户数至少将占全球用户量的1/3,届时全球将有总共409家电信运营商向117个国家和地区的16亿用户提供5G商用服务。
So far, 50 telecom operators have been offering 5G networks globally, serving more than 5 million users. "The development of 5G in the domestic market is also robust," said Zhao.
截至目前,全球已有50家电信运营商向逾500万用户提供5G网络。赵大春表示,5G在国内市场的发展势头也很强劲。
As of September, 86,000 5G base stations had been put into run under three major Chinese telecom operators, and the number of stations is expected to exceed 130,000 by the year's end.
截至9月,国内3大运营商已开通5G基站8.6万个,预计到年底,基站数量有望超过13万个。
But road ahead is still rough and bumpy, Zhao added, as the present technology is still not mature, the commercial mode lacks innovation and operation cost is high.
不过鉴于当前技术尚未成熟、商业模式缺乏创新、运营成本依旧高昂,5G未来发展的道路不会一帆风顺。
