Employee engagement and a healthy work life balance have always been cornerstones of FDAQRC’s business practices. Management consistently reviews and evaluates how we can create a more positive company culture and offer employees better support. In the Summer of 2022, we changed our policy from standard five 8-hour workdays per week to a compressed four 10-hour workdays.
Changing the schedule brought forth great benefits for our FDAQRC team. We saw an increase in productivity and more positive attitudes overall. One employee explained, “It’s been great to have an extra day off. My family has been able to take weekend trips and I get to spend more time with my kids during their summer break!” Due to the compressed schedule, most meetings are held in the middle of the week to ensure all client needs are met, while still having enough time during the week for employees to get quality work done. At FDAQRC, we have demonstrated that we are able to maintain our exceptional quality standards while giving employees the space to take care of themselves and maintain a healthy work-life balance.
