    Add one hyphen and you're good.

    Re: working days?

    Hint: There is really only one place a hyphen can go.

    I don't know how to make it clearer without actually giving a direct answer.

    Happy New Year.

    Re: working days?

    No. It's "know-how" when it's a noun as it is in your sentence.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
