STAGGERED WORK HOURS STUDY. DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF STAGGERED WORK HOURS IN MANHATTAN. VOLUME I - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY--PHASE 1
The concept of staggered work hours is a proven "low capital-intensive" method of reducing transportation congestion. Experience has shown that the staggered work hours program in Manhattan has not only reduced congestion on transportation systems, but has improved efficiency in business operations by reducing lobby congestion and improved employee attendance, punctuality and morale, all of which are additional non-cost benefits. The objective of this study was not only to further the staggered work hours program in the New York-New Jersey region, but also to determine means and methods to assist other communities in establishing their own staggered work hours program. This report, Volume I, provides a concise description of the work conducted during the study and includes the principle findings, a comparison of staggered work hours, flexible work hours, the four-day work week, and highlights the state-of-the-art of staggered work hours programs in the United States and abroad, based on a comprehensive survey of more than 200 cities throughout the world.
