The workforce is ever-changing, and companies should take steps to keep up with new trends to maximize employee satisfaction and morale. Being able and willing to adopt employee policies can help reduce turnover and increase productivity. One change employers can make is to offer scheduling alternatives to traditional workweek of eight hours, Monday through Friday.
The power of the internet now allows people to work from the comfort of their own homes, often working for themselves and taking advantage of flexible hours. This allows people to earn a full-time living while still being able to schedule doctor’s appointments, chaperone field trips for their kids, and manage other obligations that would otherwise require taking time off work. With all of these opportunities, the traditional 40-hour, five-day workweek seems less and less attractive for many people.
The reality is that some jobs require employees to come into the office or at least remain logged in at home. However, employers can explore the possibility of alternative schedules, such as working four ten-hour days per week and taking a three-day weekend every weekend. This allows employees a regular weekday off to take care of personal business.
When considering the possibility of alternative schedules, employers should address some common concerns. Is the alternative schedule right for your type of business? What other effects might the new schedules have on your company? How do you implement an alternative schedule?
