Gorsuch Construction appoints Vice President of Operations

Why are we moving to a 4-day workweek?

At Gorsuch Construction, the well-being of our team is our top priority. Because of this, we get results, deliver on our promises, seek innovative solutions, and bring integrity to everything we do. We do this with a talented, dedicated, and empowered team of professionals.

With the best interests of our team in mind, we’re proud to announce that we are now operating under a 4-day workweek. An extra 24 hours of added flexibility, rejuvenation, and time to oneself is the new normal for our team. Come join us and it could be your new normal, too!

How we benefit from a 4-day workweek.

Scientific evidence points to an overall increase in wellness and job satisfaction when people have a better balance of work time and non-work time. Employees have more time to spend doing the things they love. Their minds and bodies have downtime to rejuvenate. They have more time to grow personally and professionally. There are new opportunities to get involved and volunteer in the community or better support their families. As a result, it fosters greater creativity and innovation.

What does a 4-day workweek look like at Gorsuch Construction?

Our organization will operate 4 days a week, 8.5 hours each day. Our employees will have 34-hour workweek schedules while getting paid for 40 hours. We are reimagining the way our work gets done. We are working smarter, with more efficiency and productivity.

  • Our focus is on our productivity and results rather than how much time is spent in the office.
  • Our competitive compensation package remains the same – you’re now granted an additional day for “me” time each week.
