Torfs employees get extra time off after a busy summer: "Spend the time well"

"It has been a busy summer. We asked a lot from our staff", says CEO Wouter Torfs of the shoe store chain with the same name. "They deserved an extra holiday". 

'Schoenen Torfs' won the award for "Employer of the Year" for the sixth successive time this year. However, competition is hard in the shoe sector, and work pressure has been on the rise. To reward staff for the hard work last summer, Wouter Torfs has granted employees an extra day off. "We hope people will benefit from this day to take time for themselves enjoy." 

Employees are free to choose when they take their extra day off. However, the company wants to avoid that all employees will pick the same day.
