Hutch 4 Day Week Confirmed!

Back in June 2022 we began trialling a 4 day week here at Hutch, and we can now officially announce that the 4 Day Week will continue!


Ensuring that Hutch is an amazing place to work is really important to us. And we're super proud that we've received a Best Place to Work award from gamesindustry.biz for 4 years in a row (from 2020 to 2023). These awards take into account our working practices and benefits, along with input from staff.

At Hutch we’ve always had a hybrid work from home and office split. Before the pandemic we worked from home for 2 days per week to to provide our employees with a level of flexibility. During the pandemic we all worked fully from home, and we now work in the office for 2 days a week, with 2 days working from home as part of our 4 Day Week - more on that below!


  • 4 Day Working Week
    We signed up to a 4-day working week trial for 6 months in June 2022 and after the success of the trial, we are now officially a 4 Day Week company! The 4 day working week will be added as a rolling 12 month policy for all our staff (to be reviewed annually).

  • Mental Health coaching
    Bi-weekly coaching sessions to ensure you and your team have support when you need it.

  • Private medical insurance
    Medical insurance, plus access to remote GPs.

  • Enhanced Maternity/Paternity
    An enhanced package (more than the minimum government allowance), so you can enjoy more time off with your family.

  • Performance Bonus
    Everyone at Hutch shares in the success of the business. This is trending upwards year on year and offers a great annual payment.

  • Game Jams and Personal Project Days
    Regular studio game jams (one of our current games came from a game jam) and Personal Project Days to enhance your skills and develop in an area that’s important to you. From June 2022 we'll hit pause on Personal Project Days while we take part in our 4-day working week trial.


Getting a good work / life balance is super important to everybody at Hutch and we've created an environment that helps people get that balance just right.
