Incat introduces four-day work week

Incat has announced the introduction of a four-day work week for our production employees.

This new approach aims to increase productivity and enhance employee well-being, while providing a better work-life balance.

Incat CEO Stephen Casey says he is excited to see the positive impact the four-day work week will have on Incat’s operations.

“We believe that a compressed work week can actually increase productivity, with longer periods of working in flow when at work, and more time to find balance with all the things that occur outside of work,” Mr Casey said.

“By prioritising the well-being of our employees and giving them an extra day away from work each week, we’re not only reducing burnout and turnover rates but also fostering a happier, healthier, and more productive and engaged workforce.”

“The flexibility is what sets our approach apart, as it allows production employees to choose between a four-day or five-day schedule, depending on their preference and commitments outside of work. This allows us to accommodate the needs of our diverse workforce, ensuring that everyone can achieve a healthy work-life balance.”

Incat’s Shipyard Works Coordinator Michael Berwick says the feedback he has received from the workforce so far has been positive.

“As a workforce we have been really excited about the prospect of the four-day work week. We see it as a way to have more time for ourselves and with our families, which I think will lead to higher job satisfaction and productivity. It’s great to see Incat taking this step to support its employees,” Mr Berwick said.

“The four-day work week is a win-win for employees and the company. It allows the workforce to recharge and come back to work more energised, which I think will improve the efficiency and quality of our operations.”

This new initiative builds on Incat’s positive work environment, ensuring that employees can continue to thrive.
