TWO HOUR LUNCHES
This great schedule need not be incorporated everyday. Please consider an 8:00AM to 5:00PM schedule or 7:00AM to 4:00PM schedule. You can stagger your workers’ schedules or have a uniform ” two hour lunch day” once or twice a week. It releases tension and allows for more personal time. This also gives the client or consumer a feeling of stability and well being.
When buying a building or factory from someone who wants a furlough from their enterprise do not shut down your company. Re-do the site as your new operation while your current site keeps producing. When it is ready shut down the current site and put it on the market. You won’t loose productivity and the transition will go more smoothly.
When relocating your production or corporate site look for someone with similar intent. There is a chance that you can do a swap with the buildings and save scads of money. Corporate similarities are not essential for such a transition. You are looking for size, location, and quality of workmanship on the foundation and skeleton. The rest should fall into place because the spirit will be satisfied and enthusiastic.
