At the start of July, STR announced that they will be introducing summer trading hours, allowing staff to finish at 2pm every Friday. Some of the team who work in US hours will also benefit from this by moving to a 4-day working week. This decision was made as STR understands the importance of spending time with friends and family, as well as enjoying the summer!
“Here at STR we’ve always changed with the times, whether it’s having the right tools to perform, the right environment to work in or award-winning recruitment training. The early finish Friday is an initiative that reflects our desire to support our staff with their own down time needs. Let’s enjoy the summer together!”
Clive Hutchings, STR Group Executive Director
We also caught up with a few of the staff to find out what they think of the new employee benefit.
“I think the early finish on a Friday is a great idea. It works really well for me as I have 2 young children who I don’t get to see much in the week, so I will be spending some quality time with them on bike rides, in the garden and paddleboarding!”
Martin Hodgkinson, STR Groups Learning and Development Consultant
“The new 2pm finish on a Friday is an amazing benefit! It really shows STR’s commitment to work life balance! I can’t wait to spend my Friday afternoons off at the beach with my two young children, teaching them to surf and have more time to make lasting memories!”
Hayley Burns, Stride Resourcing’s Account Executive
