Australian recruiter gifts one-day off each week

The four-day work week ideology is showing no signs of tiring, despite recent debate suggesting that the four-day work week is not feasible or sustainable. Results from the likes of Perpetual Guardian, Microsoft Japan and fellow Australian companies Icelabs and Versa, have shown increases in productivity and profitability, not to mention the significant reduction in stress levels and health issues among employees. Recruitment firm Beaumont People has become the next Australian company to adopt the initiative in its desire to remain connected to the growing needs of its own people and the Australian workforce. “The concept of a four-day work week intrigued me from the very beginning,” explain

Jobseekers will sacrifice money for a flexible workplace

Flexibility and meaningful work have overtaken salary at the top of the wishlist of jobseekers, heralding new mindsets coming into play. A national survey of jobseekers by Talentpath Recruitment revealed 72 per cent of Australian workers rated flexible working conditions above higher salaries, with career pathways and having purpose and meaning in their work close behind. And 51 per cent ranked an organisation’s reputation as a priority, saying they would research the company online, including employee reviews, before applying. It means businesses that continue to structure employee retention and attraction strategies around salary will be left behind in the race for top talent. “Candidates

Four-day week proving a hit with staff and clients

When Rusher Rogers Recruiting talent director Susie Rogers told her staff she would be introducing a four-day working week, the response was overwhelming. “Some of them even did the Toyota jump – they literally jumped for joy. It was a big hit,” Susie laughs. “We were prepared for mixed reactions; for people worrying how they could get their work done in four days or how it would impact on their personal lives. “But there was none of that. They absolutely embraced the idea.” That was December last year – at the staff Christmas party, no less.
