The Norfolk-based law firm of Taylor & Walker PC has started a voluntary four-day work week in its offices. The reason: It saves employees gas money.
Apparently companies across the country have been opting for a new four-day, 8-6 schedule; the program started in late June at the Taylor & Walker offices in both Norfolk and Richmond and will run until the end of the summer. And anyone who has a set five-day schedule can keep it.
The four-day plan also gives employees the option to have long weekends during the summer months, according to Jim Brydges, the firm’s managing partner.
