Four-day week sparks Atom jobs rush

Here is a very clear indication that the great resignation and the broader covid impacts are making a substantial difference to the workplace.

Atom Bank says it has had a 500 per cent jump in applications for job vacancies since it introduced a four-day week for staff with no loss of pay.

Staff surveys are also showing that employees feel less stressed and that no evidence of a negative impact on customer service or operations has been detected in the two months since the digital bank broke ground by declaring that it would move permanently to a four-day week.
