Inspirec by this, what is the smartest way your employer cut costs?
For us, it was simple. In order to keep air conditioning costs down in summer, our schedules were adjusted so that we worked a little longer Monday-Thursday, but only had a half day Friday. They turn off the A/C Thursday night unless it’s a bad heat wave, where they wait until noon on Friday. Result: Everyone gets a long weekend in the summer, and the college saves a ton of money not having A/C running in most of the offices (obviously, the server room keeps it on so things don’t overheat).
Similarly, in order to save on heating costs, the college shuts down completely between Christmas Eve and New Years Day. Heat is turned as low as it goes, all personal computers are turned off, and lights are off. Also saves a lot and we get a long vacation just at the time we need one.
