Work week hours get high marks

Early survey results on Effingham County’s 4-10 work week have been favorable, county officials said.
The county has received 116 citizens’ surveys, said project manager Adam Kobek and 98 percent of the respondents said they had a pleasant experience with the county’s new work hours. Commissioners adopted the four-day/10-hour-a-day work week in July for such entities as the county administrative offices, offices housed in the county annex, recreation, public works and water and wastewater.
Under the adopted work week, those county offices going to the new hours are open from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Ninety-one percent of the respondents said they thought the new hours of the county’s adjusted work week were sufficient, Kobek said. Eighty-five percent said they have not used the office before 8:30 a.m. and 83 percent said they had not used the office after 5:30 p.m.
