Have you ever considered implementing summer hours for your employees? If you haven’t, there might be some real advantages you’re missing out on.
Burnout is becoming a real problem for a lot of employees, and it’s much better that you get ahead of it instead of scrambling at the last minute when your productivity suddenly starts to drop.
Benefits of summer hours
– Improved flexibility for employees
– Boost company morale
– Summer Fridays boost productivity
– Avoid burnout and stress overload
How to implement summer hours in your workplace
The typical time frame for summer hours is between Memorial Day and Labour Day. While you can choose to incorporate them however you want, most companies take part in “summer Fridays.” You can allow employees to take a half-day every Friday (or every other Friday depending on the nature of your company). The point is, you’re showing employees that you value them enough to give them more time to enjoy themselves outside of work—and increasing efficiency at the same time.
Questions for leaders
1. Do you currently have a policy for summer hours? If not, what makes you hesitate to implement them?
