Saving Gas with 4 day work weeks

It used to be that employers looked at flexible schedules to boost morale and productivity, but with gas prices skyrocketing, the practice offers new benefits. Eliminating one round trip commute per week is becoming a more significant employee benefit in terms of reduced gas costs. While impacts on personal budgets are helpful to employees, employers are seeing benefits as well. Unemployment issues notwithstanding, it's still good management practice to retain employees who perform well. There can be benefits for both sides, and with gas prices and congestion on the rise, now there's a new reason to look more closely at new ideas. There's a new article from Reuters on this subject.
