After a business trip, employees of Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Humantech get the following Friday off, just to unwind. The workplace ergonomics consulting firm’s business travelers earn the extra day off when they make extended trips or work odd hours while on the road.

The program, called Flex Fridays, “provides some elasticity to pressure-packed schedules,” says CEO James Good.
Frequent travelers also are encouraged to collect lotions, body washes, shampoos and conditioners from their hotel rooms to donate to homeless shelters. The firm also organizes two community service events a year for employees to participate in.

“We do absolutely as much as we can to maximize our opportunity for effective recruitment and retention,” Good said.

About five to six employees take advantage of Flex Fridays in a typical week.
