Dunelm begins four-day week trial

Homeware retailer Dunelm is reportedly to offer staff the option of a four day week as part of a hybrid working trial.

The chain, which operates over 170 stores across the UK, is going to test different four-day working patterns in selected departments, reports Retail Week.

Citing a note from a staff member, the report also notes that the company could expand the scheme following an initial trial period. Workers taking part in the trial will be able to work from home or in the office.

Other major retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and M&S have all rolled out compressed four-day week options to staff. Sainsbury’s in particular has offered the option to staff at its head offices, warehouses and to store managers.
