Alternative Work Week
Compressed Work Week
Who says 5 into 4 won't go?
Okay, so it will, but not evenly. Our point: depending on the nature of your work, it may be possible for you to work 4 days instead of 5.
This Smart Commute option really packs a punch. It not only takes a car off the road one day per week, but it means the commuter is less likely to travel at peak periods on the days that they do drive.
How could it work for you?
A compressed work week is an easy and efficient way to smart commute. By working 35 hours in just 4 days, you can shorten your work week by one day and possibly lengthen your weekend. If you think this could be an option for you, find out if your company smart commutes this way!
Flexible Work Hours
Flexibile work hours allow employees to work a standard amount of hours each day of the week, but give more leeway on start, finish, and break times.
How could flexible work hours work for you?
Let's face it - our days are unpredictable and busy. You may have children to pick up from school or yoga classes at 4:00, so the standard 9-5 shift just doesn't work for you. Flexibility allows you to change your hours of business, so you can make your personal life fit with your work life, all while avoiding the peak traffic periods which will save you time on your commute!
