Thoughtful Thursday Pilot Program

Holy Cross is committed to promoting a work-life balance. Thursday’s are designated as Thoughtful Thursday, a day with limited meetings and focus time.


“Thoughtful Thursdays” pilot program which is a meeting-free day or half-day. A day without meetings will allow our staff community to collectively designate Thursdays as time for strategic and independent work. This program is being implemented in response to employee feedback about the desire for better work life balance.
