Kellogg's gives employees 'summer fun' with flexible working hours
Employees at Kellogg's who have worked their contracted hours have been given the opportunity to take Friday afternoons off over the summer.

Running from May to September, the summer hours scheme allows staff to finish work at midday on Friday as long as they have completed a full week's worth of hours.

Beginning today (May 8th), the initiative is now in its sixth year and all 600 of the firm's office-based workers are eligible.

Karen Meehan, European human resources vice president at Kellogg's, said: "We recognise that many businesses suffer due to unauthorised summer sickness absence and due to our flexible working policy this is something that we don't have to worry about."

Meanwhile, T-Mobile is offering a new salary sacrifice scheme to its workers, allowing those who commute to save money on the price of an annual bus ticket, Employee Benefits reported.
