This summer, the owners and leadership team at New England Construction decided to implement a new “Summer Friday Program” for our office staff. The expectation was made that our hard working staff would continue to accomplish all of their goals for the week as needed but would then be allowed to end their Friday at 3:00pm as opposed to our usual 5:00pm closing time.
The feedback was immediate and positive! Our team looked at this as a great opportunity to kick off their summer weekends early and spend some much deserved extra time in the sun with their families and friends. One of our Contract Administrators, Lauren Correia, had the following to say about the program:
“The Summer Friday Program here at NEC has quickly became one of my favorite things about this company. We all know the feeling of getting so caught up into the work days that we forget to put time aside for ourselves, family and friends. The Summer Fridays allow for you to take some extra time off and enjoy the summer.
Personally one of my favorite Summer Fridays has been strawberry picking with my parents and grandmother. As a child this is something that we have always done and with all the weddings, baby showers, and special events occurring this year, my weekends have become too hectic to enjoy those moments. So one Friday at 3:00 I shut my computer down and spent the day picking strawberries at 4 Town Farm with my family. It is a memory I will cherish and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to make it happen!”
