The Most Unproductive Season

Summer is here. Along with the warm weather and long days comes a lot of distractions for your employees. There are vacations to take. The lure of the beach on Friday afternoon is as strong as the tide during a full moon.

So, how do you handle The Most Unproductive Season?

Do you have summer hours?
Do you have half-day Fridays?
How do you handle groups of people being gone?
Do you staff for unproductive times?

I like summer. I like sitting on my deck and hearing the birds chirp in the morning. But business needs keep chirping along, too. Customers and clients don’t care that it’s summer. They want their stuff and they want it now. It’s a management — and an HR — challenge.
