Offering Employees Reduced “Summer Hours” May Actually Help Them Get a Lot More Done
The word “summer” conjures up happy memories of barbecues, baseball games, family vacations and trips to the beach. But as every small business owner knows, responsibilities don’t end just because it’s warm outside.
On the other hand, employees need time to rest up, recharge and relax. Especially when the warm weather and beaches are calling. So what to do? The answer may be to give employees what they want – a shorter work week in the form of “summer hours.”
Summer Hours Are Good For Business Too
Summer hours let employers offer a great perk at little or no extra cost
Employees value them, with many rating flex time or early Fridays as their favorite summer perks.
Employees with summer hours even say it makes them more productive.
Giving your employees a chance to escape every now and then can make them happier, and help them to feel more appreciated, so they may be willing to give back even more. Many employers also report that once the first chills of autumn arrive and the lure of summer is past, employees tend to be eager to once again focus on business.
So this summer, let your employees know how much you value their efforts by making summer even more enjoyable with some well-deserved time off and gift cards from Verizon Small Biz Rewards they can use for a dinner under the stars, or to simply gear up for the warm weather.
