Starting Monday 13 February, the workday for the network of offices of the HR company Eurofirms will end at 6:00 pm instead of 7:00 pm.
The new schedule, which is in keeping with the proposals of the “work schedule reform”, will improve the well-being of over 430 people in the group.
Eurofirms has adapted its work schedule to its business culture based on management through values, prioritising people’s well-being above all. Starting on 13 February, with the aim of contributing to a better quality of life for its workers, the workday of the office network will end at 6:00 pm instead of 7:00 pm.
Aware that being “happy at work” is one of the company’s most treasured assets, the new office hours, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, will allow the team to better combine the time they devote to their jobs and their personal lives. The change in schedule will not affect the customer service, as Eurofirms has planned to expand its on-call service to attend to any potential client emergencies which occur outside office hours.
In keeping with the new “work schedule reform”
Eurofirm’s new schedule seeks to abide by the proposals for a new work schedule currently being promoted to change working hours in order to give employees greater freedom in managing their free time, synchronising scheduling habits with the rest of the world and, above all, improving health and quality of life.
The social debate surrounding the work schedule reform recently initiated in Spain aims to foster habits with more civic-friendly working hours, thereby promoting equality among people, health and well-being. Eurofirms is well aware of this debate and, although it long ago introduced more flexible work schedules for entering and leaving work, it has now further condensed the working day in order to finish earlier.
The new schedule will apply to the entire group
The new measure is now positively affecting the well-being of all Eurofirms employees, comprising over 430 individuals spread around in 88 offices. Eurofirms closed 2016 with a turnover of 294.7 million euros, an increase of 38% over the previous year. It has 12 offices in Portugal, with a total of 63 people.
With this scheduling policy, Eurofirms doubles down on its commitment to its own business model, one which places people at the centre of the company’s activity, prioritising management through values in order to achieve the best possible results.
Eurofirms, the leading domestic HR company going back over 25 years, offers temporary placement, personnel recruitment, outsourcing and Pivot services. It also has a Foundation that provides job insertion services for the physically and mentally disabled.
