AB World Foods, Finalist 2017, The Cross River Partnership Best Flexible Working Initiative Award
The ‘Summer Hours’ initiative was introduced to enable employees to go home early on a Friday in the summer months.
In return for working extra hours Monday-Thursday, employees can finish work from 12.30pm on Friday, allowing them more flexibility in the traditional holiday period.
Initially introduced as a trial, it received excellent feedback and was requested by employees as a recurring summer working initiative. Take-up rate was 62 per cent and the scheme has proved very attractive when hiring.
