- Sir James Dyson, the companys founder, does not wish to provide too much information about the project – – As one of the UKs most successful companies, the engineering firm Dyson is looking to recruit an additional 300 engineers to produce and build its first electric car by 2020.
- Sir James Dyson, the companys founder, does not wish to provide too much information about the project, with staff being advised that they must do everything to keep the specific details about the new vehicle confidential.
- Described by Sir James as radical and different, the car is not set to appeal to the mass market and is not going to be cheap.
- With a number of firms globally currently developing and producing electric cars, it is not necessarily going to be an easy ride for Dyson.
- Further existing car brands such as Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes, Volvo and VW are jumping on the band wagon with announcements of new hybrid or electric versions of their existing diesel and petrol engine ranges, making it difficult to see how Dyson can make a significant impact in this…

- The US company REI has decided to offer its staff something really rather different: an extra two days of The extra holiday days must be enjoyed outdoors – – Newsdesk – – – – – Legal News, – – – – – – Thursday 31 May 2018 – – -…
- Yay Days – – Staff working at REI currently receive 20 holiday days as basic, but can get up to two more, which the company have nicknamed Yay Days.
- In the UK, 20 days is the minimum holiday days a worker would receive (not including bank holidays), whereas in the US, 20 holiday days would generally be considered quite high, with many employers offering just 10 or 15 paid holiday days a year.
- Therefore, the US-based REI is a clear leader when it comes to generous staff packages by offering staff 22 holiday days in total.
- With mental health issues amongst UK staff at an all-time high, employers could do a lot worse than provide two extra days to allow workers the chance to get back to nature.
