What do compressed workweeks mean?
Compressed hours refer to a work schedule where the standard workweek is compressed into a shorter time frame. This means that an employee may work the same number of hours but within a reduced number of days. For example, instead of working for eight hours every day for five days a week, an employee may work for ten hours each day for four days in a week. In this case, the employee will still work for a total of forty hours in a week, but within a compressed time frame. This can offer certain benefits to both the employee and employer, such as increased productivity, reduced commute time, and more flexibility.
