Administrative Task Force on the Four Day Work Week. Final Report.
California State Univ., Los Angeles.
The Administrative Task Force on a 4-day work week at California State University in Los Angeles was charged with the following responsibilities: (1) To make an indepth study of the "literature" of experience of other universities, a survey of staff, faculty, and students if required, and other activities that will result in setting up a list of favorable and unfavorable attributes of the 4-day work week for a campus; (2) if deemed feasible, to set up a limited pilot plan; (3) evaluate the results of the pilot operation; and (4) make a final recommendation for policy regarding the 4-day work week, including bugetary matters. Academic and support officers in the university were canvassed for interest in participating in the project. A questionnaire was used as the survey instrument. Preliminary analysis of the data indicated a high degree of support for voluntary participation in the 4/40 work plan both from those working under the plan and those not on the plan but working in the same offices. Other advantages of the plan include: reduced driving problems, easier parking, reduction in fixed expenses such as lunch, morale improvement, increased productivity and work efficiency, and reduced costs to the state.
