Sunny Days! Gilbert Stephens initiates Sunny Days Policy25th July 2022
Last week Gilbert Stephens introduced a new ‘Sunny Days’ policy to help staff cope with hot weather.
The policy which came into effect immediately, allows all employees across the firm to take two additional days annual leave at short notice in cases of extreme heat.
CEO Vicky Thompson said: “We recognise that the recent spell of hot weather has been challenging for some of our staff. The new Sunny Days policy will help those who need to take a break from the heat to come back to work refreshed and ready to continue delivering great results for our clients. This heatwave is unusual for the UK but with ongoing climate issues we are concerned it is something which will become more commonplace, and we want to be fully prepared, as well as flexible as possible for our staff. This new policy allows us to do that.”
