      Thank you for your feedback. We have changed our working hours from January 2019 and we now work fewer hours with an early finish on the Friday without a change in pay. Our Rewards Policies are currently under review as well and we are soon to be assessing our holiday entitlement to ensure we are competitive wherever we can be!
