Unlimited Vacation…..Are You Kidding!!!!

19-21_tnI know what you’re thinking—”Unlimited vacation?! I won’t have any employees in the office, ever!” Okay, now here’s the flip side: unlimited vacation is scientifically proven to improve efficiency, creativity and workplace environment. More and more companies are joining the one percent of companies, like Netflix and Virgin Group, who offer unlimited vacation to their full employee base. Not only does an unlimited vacation policy improve happiness, but it saves your company money. If you’re worried about the bottom line, then you’ll be happy to hear that employees are less likely to take work off with an unlimited vacation policy. But, it’s the offer, the possibility, the opportunity that’s important to employees.

Boosts morale—Want an amazing culture that most companies envy? Offer unlimited vacation. Workplaces become reinvigorated after employees take time off and truly disconnect, no matter how hard it may be. Unlimited vacation also means something different to every employee—an entry-level 24-year-old may want to go backpacking in Europe, while a 38-year-old father may want to go to every single one of his daughter’s little league softball games. The ability for them to customize their vacation is important and boosts happiness.

Best recruiting tool—Blow your recruiting competition out of the water by offering an unlimited vacation policy. Especially for millennial job seekers, benefits have become an important negotiating and decision-making tool. Recruiting and retaining the best talent will craft a high performance culture. This will jump start your company into hyper-growth mode.

More connected teams—An unlimited vacation policy re-energizes all employees because happiness spreads positivity. If even one employee goes on a vacation, they boost the atmosphere and bring new, fresh ideas to each team meeting.

How to Stay Focused and Productive During Summer

summer-introWhen the weather is warm and the sun is shining outside, it’s hard to focus on the task at hand in the office. Whether you are going on vacation or just dreaming of one, productivity tends to decline around the summer months. Time to buckle down and make the most of your time at the office. Here are some tips to staying focused this summer:

Make plans for children—If you’re a parent, balancing work and having a child at home is difficult and definitely weighs on work productivity. Don’t wait until the last minute to make summer plans for your kids. Look into day camps, educational and sport activities to keep them busy. If needed, research community child centers for daycare.

Communicate and plan—The most important thing you can do during the summer is over-communicate with your boss and team about days off. Even if you’ve reminded your team that you’ll be gone, remind them again. Make sure that your work is done or in capable hands.

Be flexible—Keep in mind that you may have to work a little during your vacation or work on nights or weekends during the summer. Of course, take time off and recharge, but be available in case a work-emergency comes up. Additionally, you may need to cover someone on vacation which means more work. Be prepared to schedule in a late night or two at the office so you can take vacation, too.
