What Are Compressed Work Weeks?

In a compressed work week, employees work fewer than six days but maintain the total number of work hours for the week. This means that while the standard workday is typically 8 hours, in a compressed schedule, each workday might extend to 9.5 hours (or another adjusted duration). This adjustment compensates for fewer working days in the week, ensuring that the total weekly work hours remain constant.
