LinkedIn released an updated study and found that the top three things Americans value most in their career are work-life balance (34%), compensation (32%), and benefits (26%). This study shows that even employers who don’t have the ability to increase salaries can attract more warehouse job seekers by offering flexible work schedules.
Now more than ever, job seekers care about having a work-life balance and prioritizing their mental health outside of work. So, what are you doing to show potential job candidates that you care about their work-life balance too?

Compressed Work Week
Employees who choose a compressed workweek work more hours per day to receive an additional day off. For example, instead of working five eight-hour days, employees may work four ten-hour days.
A typical work model in 24-hour warehouse operations, shift work allows employees to work outside of traditional 9-to-5 hours by choosing morning, evening, or overnight shifts.
In this flexible solution, warehouse workers split their time across two shifts. For instance, they may work the beginning of the 1st shift and come back later and work part of the 2nd shift.
This arrangement accommodates workers who are not available to work full-time hours or employers with positions that don’t require 40 hours per week.
