Attracting and Staffing
Work Schedule Alternatives
Different types of work schedules have been developed to promote a
work-life balance. The typical work week for most employees is five days
per week and eight hours per day. Some organizations have implemented
compressed work week schedules such as working 10 hour shifts four days
per week or even 13 hour shifts three days per week. There are many
pluses and minuses to the compressed work week schedule that HR managers
should take into consideration. As practical examples, police officers
and nurses are known to work a compressed work week.
