Dunelm trials four-day week

Homeware retailer Dunelm is offering some staff the option of working a four-day week.

The retailer, which has stores in Cheltenham and Gloucester, is piloting different four-day working patterns for staff in selected departments, with the possibility of expanding the initiative once the trial is complete, as reported by Retail Gazette.

Staff taking part in the trial can also choose to work at home or in the office.

Dunelm is just the latest retailer to offer staff the option of a four-day week.

Last week, Sainsbury's said it was offering store managers, as well as staff at its head office and warehouses, the option to work a four-day week.

M&S and Morrisons have also introduced compressed four-day week options to help staff achieve a better work-life balance.
