We have changed our working hours!
Has your employer ever reduced your working hours and paid you the same amount of wages? We just have!
Excited to announce that since last month, we have reduced our working hours from 9-17:30 to 9-17:00 for all our staff and pay them exactly the same amount of wage.
This means a shorter working day and a 7.1% pay increase for all employees!
Although not a massive difference to everyone, for our employees it is.
Numerous research has proven that shorter days = more productive. Shorter hours boost motivation and better time management skills.
Productivity is all about being able to work smart and keep focused. The longer you work, doesn’t necessarily mean the more you will get done – this only increases stress and burnout.
Besides increasing productivity, shortening the working hours has also gave our employees more time to spend with loved ones, reduced stress and eased childcare commitments.
But the most important benefit of shortening our working hours, is that it has made our employees happier. We value and listen to our employees.
So far, this change is working great for everyone!
