Fridays Off

Choose Your Fridays Off Option

Part-time Proposal

Propose every other Friday off, working 72 hours every two weeks.

That’s only 10% fewer work hours than the standard workweek and retains 90% of your salary. Not bad for 26 long weekends a year, especially when matched with Monday holidays.

Use the Part-time Proposal Package to propose this option.

Compressed Workweek Proposal

Propose a 4/10 compressed workweek of four, 10-hour days, Monday through Friday. This is the most widely used variation of the compressed workweek, and it retains 100% of your salary.

Use the Compressed Workweek Proposal Package to propose this one.

Compressed Workweek Proposal

Propose a 5/4/9 compressed workweek, a less strenuous variation of #2. One week, work Monday through Friday, 9 hours a day (45 hours); the next week, work Monday through Thursday, 9 hours a day (36 hours) to total 81 hours in one pay period. This allows you to take every other Friday off, and still retain 100% of your salary.
