Research shows productivity and employee morale increased in workplaces that switched to a four-day work week. Many other local governments such as Jefferson County, Boulder County, the City of Westminster, etc. have also made the switch, along with Clear Creek School District RE-1 this year. In addition, like many, Clear Creek County is working to be more appealing in the market for job seekers. It is the hope that the schedule shift, and most recently, the increase in pay (approved during the Sept. 13th, 2022 BoCC Meeting), will draw more people to the County–all while still meeting the needs of residents.
