How BUTLER Lifestyles is Leading the Way with a 3.5 Day Workweek for Residential Concierge Executives in Singapore.
As a new division of the BUTLER company, BUTLER Lifestyles is a people lifestyles department dedicated to innovating products and services, and improving employee welfare. Six months ago, we piloted a new working model for our residential concierge executives – a 3.5-day workweek on an 8am to 8pm shift – in an effort to promote work-life balance and job satisfaction. We recognized that employee well-being is crucial to achieving our mission and values as a company, and we wanted to see if this new approach would improve performance and satisfaction.
We were eager to observe the response of our employees to this groundbreaking move, and we are pleased to announce that the results have been highly positive. Our team of residential concierge executives has expressed feeling revitalized, rejuvenated, and highly productive, which has directly contributed to elevating the quality of our services for our valued clients.
Carol, a new residential concierge executive at BUTLER Lifestyles, initially had reservations about the experimental 3.5-day workweek during her interview. However, after experiencing it firsthand and seeing its profound effects on productivity and well-being, she began to appreciate the advantages that this model provides.
“Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is essential for my well-being, and the 3.5-day workweek at BUTLER has enabled me to achieve precisely that. It’s liberating to have more time to spend with my family, pursue my hobbies, and practice mindfulness outside of work. I’ve been working for many years, and I’ve never experienced anything like this before. I believe that this can be the future of work, and I’m excited to be a part of it!” Carol exclaimed, her eyes shining with enthusiasm.
Another employee who had been with BUTLER Lifestyles for nearly 2 years shared similar sentiments. He expressed that the 3.5-day workweek had a profound impact on his motivation and productivity at work. “Having a long weekend to look forward to each week has given me a renewed sense of energy and purpose, and has fundamentally changed the way I approach work,” he explained.
Poon Da Qian, CEO of BUTLER notes: “I am extremely pleased to hear such positive feedback from our employees about the 3.5-day workweek at BUTLER Lifestyles. At BUTLER, we prioritize the well-being and welfare of our employees because we understand that they are the backbone of our business. Our commitment to creating a work culture that fosters quality, service, productivity, efficiency, business, and personal growth is at the forefront of everything we do.
The 3.5-day workweek is just one example of how we are innovating to create a better work-life balance for our employees. We firmly believe that by taking care of our employees, they will be able to provide the best service possible for our clients and continue to lead and improve our multi-faceted business and its industries in innovation and efficiency.
As we move forward, we will continue to explore new and innovative ways to support and empower our employees, ensuring that they have the tools and resources they need to thrive both personally and professionally.”
