"Keep banker's hours" nghĩa là gì?

'Keep banker's hours' nghĩa là làm việc/hoạt động, mở cửa (kinh doanh, vận hành,...) dưới 8 tiếng một ngày.

Ví dụ
As a crisis communications manager and media trainer for executives, I always have to be “on” and ready for anything. Because I don’t keep banker’s hours – working early, late and weekends if required – I generally take Fridays off.

While the thrum of a hospital continues through the night, some surgery center doctors keep banker’s hours. That means patients whose surgeries end later in the day are sometimes left in the care of one or two nurses for up to 23-hour stays. Some patients have been sent home to grapple with (vật lộn với) complications (biến chứng) on their own.

Consumers are often annoyed when businesses only seem to keep banker’s hours. Consumers don’t all work banker’s hours and need to be able to contact a company any time of the day or night for assistance. A chatbot can be that point of contact that can assist with general questions or direct parties to the appropriate method of handling a more serious issue.
