Bumble staff given week off to de-stress

Bumble, the dating app where women are in charge of making the first move, has temporarily closed all of its offices this week to combat workplace stress.
Its 700 staff worldwide have been told to switch off and focus on themselves.
One senior executive revealed on Twitter that founder Whitney Wolfe Herd had made the move "having correctly intuited our collective burnout".
Bumble has had a busier year than most firms, with a stock market debut, and rapid growth in user numbers.
The company announced in April "that all Bumble employees will have a paid, fully offline one-week vacation in June".
A spokeswoman for Bumble said a few customer support staff will be working in case any of the app's users experience issues. These employees will then be given time off to make sure they take a whole week of leave.
The spokeswoman confirmed that the majority of Bumble's staff are taking the week off.
