Metro Bank is allowing new and existing full-time employees to choose if they want to move to a compressed four-day week.

People working in Metro Bank’s high street banks are being offered a compressed four-day week, becoming the latest employers to explore alternative working patterns.

Metro Bank offers customers extended opening hours in the evenings and at weekends and, to manage these, those working in its stores have worked a traditional five-day shift pattern. But now all store employees will have the choice between either the existing five-day or the new four-day working week. Regardless of the shift pattern chosen, all store colleagues will work the same hours depending on whether they are full or part time.

Carol Frost, Chief People Officer of Metro Bank, said: “We are famous for our culture and the focus we bring on recruiting the right people for our business and we believe this new shift pattern will be very appealing for those who need more flexibility in their working life.  We trialled the new shift pattern in nine stores last year and it works really well for colleagues who need more flexibility in their working week.  The new shift pattern is totally optional and nearly two thirds of our existing store colleagues will move to this new four-day week from February.”
