Umm... It **would be** irrelevant, because those employees *always* go to work at N .. N+8, and they go home and eat dinner at N+9, and go to bed and N+12, and so on. The actual numbers don't matter!

Are you suggesting that a national company tells its employees their work hours using a mathematical formula?
"If you live Ontario, N is 5.If you live in Manitoba, N is 6. If you live in Saskatchewan, N is 6. If you live in BC, N is 7. Office hours are 9+N to 17+N."
How is that better than time zones?
"Office hours are 9am to 5pm"
And that's just one example.
