Employees love flexibility and that’s the benefit of this fabulous summertime perk: Going home early on Fridays. A recent survey of Fortune 1000 companies showed that this is the new perk–with 42 percent of companies participating, up from 21 percent in 2015. This is a perk you don’t need to be a big player to offer.
You can make it work whatever way your company needs, but here are some suggestions to make this perk work for your office.
Make it Flexible
For 9 years I worked at a company that offered half-day Fridays in the summer. How it worked was instead of working 8 hours on Monday-Thursday, you worked 9, and then were able to go home four hours early on Fridays. (Keep in mind that in California and a few other localities, overtime pay kicks in at any work above 8 hours in a single day for any non-exempt employee. Almost everywhere else, overtime is only dependent on going over 40 hours in a week.)
