Days Off & On: Getting More From Your Employees (Without Burning Them Out) 

ds

Happy Day-After-Presidents’ Day 2021! 

That’s one of those holidays that some businesses have off while many others don’t. 

Here at Website Depot, Danny Star gives the team the option to work on the day if they want. 

But, he does make the teamwork for at least a half-day on the following Saturday. This is true of every major national holiday that the team has off, too. 

This may seem odd to your company, but really, it’s a great way to let employees rest and relax while getting everything done that needs to be done.

A Growing Business that Works Like a Small Business 

 

The truth is that many of our clients are small businesses that aren’t in a position to be able to take a day off, federally-mandated or not. Those days are needed for business, for growth, to keep the lights on, and so forth. 

They’re counting on us to be able to get the work done for them they need to be done. So, it stands to reason that we should work the same times they do. That said, with so many clients, employee burnout has to be taken into account. Hence, the option. If you have work to do and can do it, then do it. If not, Saturday is right around the corner.

A Day Used Well 

 

Working on the following Saturday is often structured in a way that’s different from a typical workday. Often, it’s an entire team project, done online, focused on one thing. Sometimes, it’s one client. Other times, it’s centered around bolstering one aspect of our business. The point is to make it a different experience, not a typical workday but something beyond that. Through this, the team doesn’t feel like “oh, it’s just another day of work, it just happens to be on Saturday.” Rather, it’s a different experience – that helps with keeping the team motivated, too.
