How Do You View Office Time?

November 20, 2017 by Ed Becker

Business trends reveal that many of the top firms understand that an employee’s time is precious to them and that the amount of time spent in the office is not the best measure of an employee’s contribution to the firm’s goals.  Some companies have initiated shorter work days to 7.5 hours and others have shortened work weeks to 37.5 hours replacing the traditional 8 hour day and 40 hour work week.

“Consider, for instance, the “Friday Fadeaway” at Wichita, Kansas-based Allen, Gibbs & Houlik: “If your charge hours and client and work commitments are complete by Friday noon, you’re free in many departments to simply start the weekend early,” the firm reported.”

Many firms recognize that during different parts of they year, they may need their employees to work longer hours so giving employees time off when the work load is less, makes sense.  Accounting firms are a great example, where tax season demands much longer hours.
