Kellogg’s Ireland has announced that its summer hours scheme has returned.
The cereal and snack giant noted that the scheme runs annually, from May to September.
It offers office-based and field sales colleagues the chance to finish work from midday on a Friday, provided that they have completed a full week’s hours and met all customer commitments, where relevant, the company explained.
Sarah Ferguson, general manager, Kellogg’s Ireland, said, “We’ve been offering summer hours for years now because we know it works.
“By giving our people half a day for themselves each week, it allows them to recharge and unwind.
“Not only is this great for people’s mental and physical well-being, but it also leads to increased productivity and motivation.’’
Three Hundred Employees
At its office at Dublin Airport Central, Kellogg’s Ireland currently employs 300 staff members, all of whom will be offered the opportunity to take half a day per week for themselves.
The scheme – part of a myriad of benefits offered by the Dublin-based employer – is designed to ‘support employees’ mental and physical well-being.’
Not long ago, Kellogg’s implemented industry-leading employee policies, including those focusing on the menopause, pregnancy loss, and fertility treatment.
