SPU announces four-day work week pilot project for administrative support personnel

Saint Paul University has announced that it will be piloting a four-day work week with administrative support personnel. The pilot project will last for four months and is intended to benefit employees’ mental health and productivity. Salary and pension plans will not be affected by the change. “We would probably be the first university in Canada to implement the shortened work week – it’s a revolutionary change,” said SPU Associate Vice Rector, Talent, Diversity and Culture, Carole Audet. “We’re not implementing a compressed work week and we’re not cutting pay. We hope to be a successful case study for others to follow this path, to foster a better work-life balance for all.” SPU Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
