The luxury of time was on the minds of most employees who were surveyed by Robert Half International about the summer perks they most value.

Leading the list was flextime, the choice of 38% of respondents. Next was shortened Fridays—32% of respondents said they’d like a chance to sneak out the door a little early on summer Fridays to jump-start their weekends.

Employees also expressed an interest in relaxed dress codes and potluck suppers or picnics.

Note: As with winter holiday parties, employers should limit the amount of alcohol consumed at company functions. Even if these events occur when workers are “off duty,” wronged parties will most likely go after the deepest pockets. That usually means the employer.
