Administrative Offices Closed Fridays at 1pm
May 26 – August 11, 2023
Work-life balance is more than a catch phrase for today’s employees. It reduces the effects of work-related stress on employees’ physical and mental health. By reducing the summer work week by only a few hours, our employees get to start the weekend early, enabling them to spend a little extra time with family and friends and take advantage of the wonderful recreation opportunities all around. As an added bonus, less air conditioning use during the week will save the university money as well!
Of course, some departments will continue to have responsibilities on Fridays; similar flexible arrangements will be made for equity of this program. Human Resources will work with individual units on implementation based on business needs of the unit.
Employees need to work with their supervisors on adjusting their schedules to accommodate the Friday afternoon closures. Every department is different depending on the needs of coverage during campus open hours.
