20/20 = no more 40 hours?

  • 1.  20/20 = no more 40 hours?

    Now that we have seen we can work from home more effectively than some thought - which involves a looser rein on employees than some supervisors have been comfortable with - do you think the traditional 9-5 40(+) hour work week is a thing of the past? Will that improve or hurt staff morale, firm profitability, & project quality?

    It will change the nature of Professional Practice and allow all of us to work to the benefit of projects, 7 days a week, rather than to the artificial regimen of 9-5 jobs.

    7-days a week! Isn't that stepping back to "sweat-shop" days?  We have vivedly demonstrated that with advances in new documentation, and collaboration technology we can work highly productively remote and see productivity on an real-time basis. 7-days a week - really?  Is that an idea that could be presented to students in or coming into architectural eductaion?
