Charlton Morris joins growing number of 4-day week recruiters

Specialist search firm Charlton Morris are formally introducing a four-day week for all employees beginning this month, the company has announced.

Charlton Morris conducted a six-month trial to understand the effects of the shorter week, where employees retained consistent hours and pay. The company now implements the benefit for all current and future employees as part of their wider package, the statement said.

As has reported on in recent months, this new working week brought in by Charlton Morris seems to be a growing trend in recruitment.

Rebecca Cook, Charlton Morris head of people, said: “The past 18 months has given us time to reflect on how we can become the company we want to be. Alongside our newly refreshed vision ‘to change the way the world sees recruitment, through offering our people and our customers the best possible experience’, we are adjusting our focus to what keeps our people motivated. By encouraging a healthy work/life balance with the security of the same career opportunities.”

Charlton Morris is a search firm with three divisions: CM Medical, CM Life Science and CM Industrial.
