There is a growing trend in companies worldwide to put more of a focus on production vs a fixed schedule of a worker’s time. Many employers and employees feel that the old traditional 5 day, 8 hour day is a past due concept. The pandemic has caused a significant change in the way people view their time spent at work and their leisure time.

Quality of life has become the number one issue that employees are concerned about when considering career alternatives. Working at home became a necessity during the pandemic and now the most common practice for employees nationwide is the “hybrid model”, whereby most employers allow their employees to work 2 days at home and 3 days in the office.

On the other hand, there are a number of our clients who want to get their employees back to a full time schedule in the office, as it is difficult for them to measure the productivity of their employees on a hybrid basis and it is impossible to develop a “culture” working fully remotely.

Since quality of life is the most significant issue for most employees, we recommend using the hybrid model if possible for now, and to consider the 4 day workweek if possible.

If you have any questions about how to implement any of the policies above or how to get your employees back on a full time basis, feel free to contact Michael F. Rosenblatt at:
