(The Outside In Poster boys!!)
In March of this year, we made a huge decision to trial a four day week, something very unusual in the construction sector! Trial it we did and the results have been amazing! The biggest challenge was obviously understanding the implications working just four days would have on our build schedule. We worked with the whole team to understand what would need to happen and how the new schedule would work for the company, the team, and of course our clients. Essentially we broke the builds into tasks and established what was completed in 5 days, had to happen in four so efficiencies needed to be worked on. It took a couple of months to find the rhythm but eventually, it all sank in and the changes have been fantastic reviewing productivity at the end of the year.
We canvased the team to ask their thoughts on the new schedule.
