Presentation Transcript

  1. The 4 day / 10 hour workweek: A Briefing for the Governor’s Commission on Reform and Restructuring, Simplification and Operations Committee August 4, 2010 Office of the Secretary of Finance Department of Planning and Budget

  2. The 4/10 Workweek • The Basics • Discussion Points • Assumptions • Potential Areas for Cost Savings

  3. The Basics • Due to budgetary pressure, state governments across the country have been considering the 4 day / 10 hour workweek as an option. • The goal of such a move would be real budgetary savings.

  4. Discussion Points • Any savings are highly speculative and are subject to economic changes, rate changes and significant personnel changes. • Maximum savings are only possible in state-owned buildings where all agencies can work this schedule. Rented facilities would likely produce only marginal results.

  5. Discussion Points • While some agencies that provide direct services to the public would be excluded, there will be a decrease in agencies ability to respond to customers and constituents. • Impacts on state employees: • Child care issues/additional costs to employees • Change in lifestyle requirements; viewed as a benefit/burden

  6. Discussion Points • Would any agencies be excluded? • Non-executive branch agencies • Public safety reasons (State Police, prisons, etc.) • Public Health reasons • Educational reasons (Higher education, operating support for K-12, etc.) • Revenue Generation (ABC, Port Authority)

  7. Discussion Points • Utah state government moved to 4/10 schedule, as of August 2008. • Virginia Department of Forestry started a 4/10 schedule in October 2009. Employee survey results show that 64 percent of staff viewed the change as a benefit to working at the agency.

  8. Potential Areas for Savings • Energy • Custodial • Overtime Pay • Commuter Savings (realized by employees, not by the state).
