Jeff Menzel is a regional vice president and staffing expert for Robert Half, based in its New Jersey office.
We asked him about the idea of windowed working, dividing your day into distinct “windows” of business and personal time.
The pandemic has changed what ‘normal’ work days look like for many people. It isn’t, and can’t be, the typical 9-5 anymore. Many workers are faced with challenges brought on by remote work. For some, it might be balancing work with parenting. For others, it could be various personal obligations that break up the workday. Whatever the case, companies that are allowing workers to execute their day-to-day in blocks are noticing enhanced productivity. 73% of workers who said their company allows for windowed work are more productive. In today’s uncertain climate, providing the adding flexibility is proving to be a win-win for both employees and employers.”
