On August 4th, Utah state workers shifted to a 4-day work week (four ten hour days). According to USA Today, the change will apply to approximately 17,000 state employees. This new structure will mean major savings for the state if you consider the cost of keeping state offices and facilities open. From an employee perspective, higher gas prices will hurt just a bit less.
I really like this idea. The quality of life improvements could really boost productivity and employee morale.
What would you do with an extra day off every week?
Do you think corporate America could ever shift to this standard?
