With Christmas drawing nearer most employers are preparing for an office shutdown and many employees are getting ready to down tools.
However, not all employees will be enjoying two days off over Christmas. In fact, a recent study revealed that 50% of employees will work on Christmas day, and a large majority will work the duration of the Christmas run-up. Therefore, HR must know how to communicate festive work schedules with (arguably disgruntled) staff and create the ultimate employee experience to engage and retain talent.
In the final podcast of series one, HR Grapevine’s Online Editor, Sophie Parrott, sits down with Dan Cave, Head of Content at Executive Grapevine Digital Media to talk about working over Christmas. This podcast will delve into whether staff are legally required to work over Christmas, explore employee contracts and showcase how HR can promote a positive employee experience through to the New Year.
