Kelloggs are saying it's a good idea to give employees Friday afternoons off during the summer.

A good idea or not?

The whole notion of 9-5 is nonsense for me. You should work whenever you like as long as the job gets done. Brazilian company Semco have become world famous over the years for their management practices and were doing this years ago. This from their employee manual.

Quote:
Working Hours
The Semco Group has flexible working hours where possible. This is a method of meeting the needs of each person, without harming the company.

Employee Timesheet Control
At the Semco Group, each person controls their own working hours. This is a method of transferring responsibility to each person.

I agree with flexible working hours as long as it doesn't harm the company and it's suitable for the job. With some jobs it would be necessary to follow quite rigid hours, but otherwise keep people happy and let them have a longer weekend.
