Summer Flextime Program at the GSD
The summer flex schedule provides full-time GSD staff members the option, with approval from their supervisors, to work the equivalent of a regular five-day workweek in a four-day workweek. Please note that not all departments will be able to offer this option as it needs to be suitable to the department’s business needs.
