Ogden, Utah, November 2008—Setpoint Systems, an industrial automation integration firm, announced today that they will be permanently implementing a four day work week.
After completing a trial experiment for 90 days working a 4 day, 10 hour day schedule, Monday through Thursday, the experiment has been regarded as a success.
Setpoint spent time upfront to work out benefits for the employees as well as alerting customers to this change so that there were no disruptions to the delivery of projects. Employee satisfaction has increased at work as well as a realized cost savings on gas and time in the commute.
“As we went through the 90 day pilot our top priority was to ensure our customers were still taken care of and we were still able to deliver on time. Because of all the work we did upfront in notifying them we have been able to enjoy a trouble free pilot period and are excited about making this a permanent change” says Roger Thomas, VP of Operations.
