The Management Board had previously approved the 12 hour work schedule as a six month pilot program that was subsequently reviewed by the Human Resources Department before final approval was made.  The new schedule allows for staff to have every other weekend off duty, reduces the number of days worked annually by seventy-eight, and has reduced employee overtime, sick leave, and turnover.  This new schedule has also assisted the ECC as a recruitment tool in attracting experienced communications officers.
