Just how effective are your employees? Studies show that traditional business hours are not productive, and that shorter days would make employees more effective!
The fact of the matter is, the harder and longer you work your team, the less effective they become. Burnout does exist.
To avoid burning out your team, you need to determine what style of schedule works best for their (and your) needs. Shorter days and weeks may allow for more thought and investment when they are on the clock.
Keep in mind this is also determined by the field you work in. Evaluate the work environment within your company and choose what is best for the majority under your care.
