About half of the 400 employees at the Parsippany, N.J., headquarters of outsourcing firm Solix don’t report for work for two weeks around the December holidays—but the other half do.
Members of a work group that specializes in business processes for schools and libraries mirrors the schedule of its clients, which typically are closed for the holidays.
But they work 40 hours a week the rest of the year, while colleagues in other work groups take off after 37.5 hours.
The four-year-old arrangement works for the firm’s clients, which asked Solix to make its auditors more available during crunch times. The company’s solution was to add hours to their regular workweek and to give them the holiday time off.
“Those customers are not available to contact during those weeks,” notes Lisa Tubbs, director of corporate communications for Solix.
