Change Up Your Routine
You can extend office hours and reduce the amount of time your employees spend in traffic by staggering arrival and departure times. For example, everyone might be required to be present during ‘core hours’ from 10am-3pm. Then, segments of employees will set their 8-hour schedule at varying times: some work 7am-4pm, some work 8am-5pm, some work 9am-6pm or even 10am-7pm. Your customers have more time to access your services without any additional hiring. And, your employees can better tailor their workday to the needs of their family—or simply the time of day they’re at their best!
Another example of flexible scheduling is the Compressed Work Week, where employees can opt to work 40 hours in 4 days, rather than 5. The 10-hour day extends available hours for your customers and provides your employees with a ‘free’ day off.
Offering scheduling options communicates to employees that you care about their work-life balance. That perception boosts retention and improves employee morale and job satisfaction.
