Del Olmo explained that the company’s mind set applies to guests and associates.

Sage has 6,000 employed workers across the country.

Employees hired to work the shorter week will be offered the same five-day work-week salary — and have the option to mix and match the four days they work each week.

"You can take one day during the week and work on your home renovations — and then take two days off and take your family to the mountains here in Colorado," he said.

On top of touting a four-day work week, Sage Hospitality is also allowing employees to bring their dogs to work as well.
