Grant Thornton celebrates second summer of four-day working weeks in the Cayman Islands

Following its resounding success last year, Grant Thornton Cayman Islands proudly announces the return of its summer four-day working week policy for all employees.

Once again, during the summer months of July and August, professionals will have the option to claim the Friday of their working week off. This initiative forms an essential part of the firm’s ongoing mission to promote wellness and maintain work-life balance among its talented workforce. Grant Thornton remains confident that this innovative approach better enables its professionals to meet the dynamic and evolving needs of their clients.

“We are delighted to bring back the popular summer four-day working week policy,” shares Dara Keogh, Managing Partner of Grant Thornton Cayman Islands. “This opportunity offers our hard-working team the chance to pursue hobbies, explore travel, or simply rest and rejuvenate. Last year’s positive impact demonstrated that this initiative empowers our people to improve their work-life balance, ultimately enhancing wellbeing and job satisfaction.”

“We had an overwhelming positive response to last summer’s four-day week made, both with our team but also with the wider community, and were commended on our initiative to be the first firm to employ a four-day week in the Cayman Islands – which made it an easy decision to continue the initiative this year,” continues Keogh. “Prioritizing both the physical and mental health of our people is very much ingrained in our firm’s ethos. It’s the unique character, individuality, and diversity within our team that fuels our strength and sets us apart.”

There is ongoing research highlighting the benefits of a four-day work week, and Grant Thornton is looking forward to witnessing how their employees relish this renewed policy for another year.
