THG demands all staff return to the office in 2024

THG has told all employees at its Manchester headquarters to return to office full-time, effective from January 2, 2024. 

The move could lead to a potential backlash among employees as Retail Week reported there was no prior staff consultation before the announcement.

The retailer also allegedly didn’t communicate with staff over compensation for additional travel expenses.

A company spokesperson said: “At THG, face-to-face interaction has a hugely positive impact on our business environment and results in a dynamic and vibrant atmosphere in our offices. 

“We therefore took the decision to return to a more regular, pre-Covid way of working and we will be asking our valued employees to attend the office five days per week.

“We will, of course, take into account any personal circumstances, but strongly believe this move will continue to ensure THG remains an exciting and engaging place to work where colleagues can come together to collaborate.

“We offer a range of benefits to our colleagues, including enhanced paternity and maternity leave and annual leave, as well as reduced office working hours, making THG a fantastic place to work.”

THG recently completed the acquisition of skincare brand Biossance in a deal valued at up to $20 million. 

The acquisition, from the US biotechnology group Amyris, is undergoing Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

THG bought Biossance's assets, including intellectual property, inventory, and debtors, with a book value of $29 million.
