Would you like to have a three-day weekend every week or every other week? An Alternative Work Schedule (also called a Compressed Work Week) can make it possible with longer hours worked over fewer days. Some employees choose to work four 10-hour days each week, with one day off. Others prefer to work 80-hours over nine regular work days, with an extra day off every other week.

An Alternative Work Schedule is a good trip reduction option because it eliminates one trip to work each week or every other week. Some other benefits include:

  • Allows “off peak” (non-rush hour) commute times.
  • Enables more control over work schedules.
  • Extends hours of customer service and production during the days an employee is on the job.
  • Helps retain valuable employees
