Extracurricular Fridays

14 Oct 2022

We’ve been trialing a new initiative in the office.

Come mid afternoon on Fridays, the team down tools and use the time to do whatever they please. With initial workload management concerns quickly quashed—Parkinson’s law seems to be proven here—we can highly recommend others implement a similar initiative in their own offices.

There’s lots of ways you can cut it, so balance is simply a matter of practice, and, unsurprisingly, team complaints are low. So what have our team been doing on their Friday arvos? Here’s some inspiration for your own:

→‏‏‎ ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎Off-peak gym sessions
→ ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎Niece and nephew babysitting
→ ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎Appointments of all shapes and sizes
→ ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎Traffic beating weekend getaways
→ ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎Lazy leisure (treat yo’ self)
