Kellogg Ireland is offering staff Friday afternoons off work as part of its Summer Hours scheme.
Under the scheme, more than 300 Dublin-based Kellogg’s employees are given the chance to finish work from 12pm on a Friday for those who are office-based, or on a weekday of their choice for the business’ field sales teams, provided they have completed a full week’s hours. Now in its 17th year, the scheme runs annually from May to September.
If an employee decides not to avail of the Summer Hours scheme, in 2021 Kellogg’s introduced year-long ‘meeting free Friday afternoons’ which has further encouraged a culture of flexibility and is still going strong in its second year.
“At Kellogg’s we have a long history of offering flexible working and Summer Hours is a great way to encourage our people to take time away from their desks,” said Sarah Ferguson, general manager, Kellogg Ireland. “The programme has been in place for 19 years now and we’re continuously looking at new ways we can support our teams.”
