Zoe Whiteley our Office Manager at Atlantic Pacific Marine Ltd (APM) graduated last week obtaining a MSc Business and Human Resources with a merit! Zoe studied part time for two years to obtain the degree at the University of Essex Online.

During the course Zoe studied modules in management and leadership principles, project management, human resource management, business strategy, financial management and marketing strategy. These topics all link closely to Zoe’s varied roles and responsibilities at APM.

For the final year Business and Management Research Report Zoe analysed the impacts the new four-day work week (4DWW) had on the employee wellbeing. Zoe found it really interesting to conduct primary research within the business on a topic she is passionate about. Results showed all employees have experienced some signs of increased wellbeing since starting the 4DWW. Many employees reporting they used their additional day off in order to exercise, relax and spend more time with friends and family.

We would like to wish Zoe a huge congratulations on her achievement and can’t wait to see what she does next in her career.
