Coming soon to a workplace near you - revised hours for non-morning people

At least that is the way that things are going in Denmark.


"A fast-growing group of people in Denmark who don't get along at all with the morning is lobbying employers and institutions to throw off the yoke of nine to five. They say the early-to-rise work model is outdated....The B-Society is now compiling a list of companies it is calling "B-certified." To make the list, a business will have to show that it is willing to accommodate the needs of morning haters and allow them to work when they are at their best. The group is also planning B-certification for institutions like day care centers, schools, and even government offices which have also thrown off the yoke of nine to five".

Good grief. I would have thought that if an employee can get away with being a morning zombie and not doing a damned thing for the first part of the day - without getting sacked - they should savour their fortune and keep quiet.

yes, but staggered working hours could be a great plus. This seemed to work well for the Victorians _ and public transport fares reflected this: the poor sod who had to travel to work at 6am paid far less, I believe than the gentleman stockbroker arriving at 10am. The tyranny of 9-5 was surely part of the great democratisation of the workplace _ but it plays havoc with rush hour on the roads, buses, trains and tubes. Not to mention the need to create far more rolling stock/ buses simply to cover the busiest times of day. I'd like to see far more businesses introduce staggered working hours and work-from-home days _ it would make city life alot more liveable.

the real abomination is the (I can hardly force myself to type the words) ... duvet day.

If I were an employer and my staff assembled to demand duvet days, they would promptly be looking for a cosy billet somewhere else.
