the company adopted flexible working so employees can work 10 hours per day instead of 8.

Hm. What's 4 x 2 extra hours? Yup, 8. So basically using overtime to make up for this magical "day off"...

That doesn't look very impressive. It looks like a high school project... I doubt the students at MIT would be able to keep a straight face watching that video. I certainly wouldn't count on it to save my life in a disaster zone.
