Unlimited Time Off Exists!
Unlimited Time Off Exists!

How have you been feeling this February? Not to sound like a Debbie Downer, but I think February has to be one of the worst months of the year, and it’s even my birthday month! Either you’re fighting a cold or the flu, or you have crazy cabin fever. There’s no real holidays in sight and nothing really fun to do. I always love to use this time to plan a vacation, so at least I have something to look forward to, but could you imagine unlimited paid vacation time? A new study finds that employers could actually benefit from offering their employees unlimited vacation time! Right now, just one percent of U.S. companies are offering unlimited paid time off, and those companies are happy with their results. They report benefitting because employees were happy and healthier. They also reported saving administrative time and money by not having to track employee’s days off, and that employees don’t usually take advantage of the unlimited time off because they want to protect their reputations. Hmmm, win win! Although, something tells me that wouldn’t work for every business, but bosses if you’re reading this, think about it!
