This forward-looking strategic move from Resolve Optics follows announcement of exceedingly good half year results where profits were up 10% on the same period in the previous year.
Mark Pontin - Managing Director of Resolve Optics commented "We have taken this decision, not just, off the back of our half year results, but also as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced us to look at how we work and how we stay connected with customers. It has shown us that we can work smarter, more efficiently and most importantly more productively as a motivated team. As of the 1st February all of Resolve’s employees will have their contracted hours of work reduced from 37.5 hours per week down to 36 hours per week. Instead of working five 7.5-hour days they will work four 9-hour days. Salaries will not be affected. This will enable us to operate a 4-days on 3 days off work pattern which I feel will provide a much better work life balance”.
He added "As has been demonstrated over the last year - smarter, more efficient working practices work. Our commitment to our customers is that the decision to operate 4 days per week will not affect delivery lead times or the cost of our products and services. Should the need arise and you urgently need information or assistance from Resolve Optics, you will still be able to ring or email as usual and you will receive an answer. Our intention is that our customers are not inconvenienced in anyway".
