Summer 2014 4-Day Workweek Schedule
Philander Smith College will begin implementing a 4-day, 10-hours per day (4/10) summer workweek schedule beginning Monday, May 5, 2014 and ending on Friday, August 1, 2014. The campus will be closed on Fridays during this period except for essential services (there will be departments maintaining 5-day or 24/7 coverage during this period based on PSC needs). The purpose of the 4/10 summer schedule is to keep the campus closed on Fridays and Saturdays to the greatest extent possible, thus reducing operating costs and assisting PSC with its cost savings initiatives.
General guidelines for implementation of the 4/10 summer workweek:
Essential personnel schedules may vary from this 4/10 summer schedule and will be handled by each department. The guidelines above must be used to establish each employee’s specific schedule within those departments. Schedules will be determined in cooperation with, and approval of, the supervisor. Schedules are to be arranged between supervisors and employees .
It is our wish that this summer workweek schedule will not only increase productivity and uplift morale here at PSC, but that it will also improve each employee’s family life and well-being.
