Kellogg has announced that it will reward its nearly 6,000 employees across Europe with an extra day off in 2021 and that all offices will close on Friday 19 March.
Like most businesses, in response to the pandemic, Kellogg Europe, whose headquarters are based in Dublin, enabled all office-based employees to work remotely and financially supported frontline teams like field sales and manufacturing to take time away from work if necessary, the company said.
While most people are still working remotely as the pandemic continues, Kellogg has put in place additional Inclusion and Diversity and Wellbeing programmes to enhance and strengthen the culture.
Sinead Collins, HR Director at Kellogg said: “People safety is our top priority and we’re lucky to have been in a position to allow many of our employees to work remotely during the pandemic."
"Of course, we did overcome some initial challenges to keep our operations running as smoothly as they were pre-Covid, and we’re now in a good place so we’re sharing our successes with all our people,” she added.
Additionally, Kellogg said that there have been no job losses for office-based or front-line teams in 2020.
