On this edition of the Governor's News Conference, Governor Huntsman unveiled a plan for the Executive Branch of the State of Utah to move to a four-day, ten-hour work week. The new Monday through Thursday Workweek is expected to be fully implemented in August.
Benefits include expanding hours of government agencies to outside the normal working hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, the saving of energy costs due to building shutdown, and lowering automobile emissions by reducing worker driver hours.
Governor Huntsman brought in Jeff Herring, Executive Director of Human Resources, and Kimberly Hood, Executive Director of Administrative Services to explain the benefits of his plan.
An Excel document of savings charts is located under the "Documents" tab above. For more information of the 4-10 workweek, please visit utah.gov.
