“All of us are socialized to take as “given” the clocks and calendars guiding our lives. We assume Monday is the first day of the work week, that eight (or more) hours, five (or more) days a week is what work is. ” Phyllis Moen
Simply being at work does not equal productivity. Employees report higher satisfaction and performance when there’s work-life fit.
1. In appropriate positions, offer a ROWE (Results Only Work Environment). Under ROWE it doesn’t matter where or when you work as long as you reach your intended goals.
2. Offer Flex Hours. Give a start time window (ex. 6a-8a).
3. Allow shift swapping. Employees can change shifts with Manager approval.
4. Offer a compressed week. Work 10-hour days and have an extra day off.
