Ask any psychologist, and you’ll hear that the best way to ensure productivity is by ensuring adequate downtime — hence the generous vacation policy at many successful companies. But rather than two- or three-week vacation allotments, some forward-looking companies are eliminating vacation policies altogether. Would the company you work for ever consider this?
The companies who have changed their vacation policies haven’t done away with vacation, they’ve simply eliminated vacation time tracking, and instituted an honor system in which people take the time they need, when they need it.
I think I need some vacation right about now LOL ~ Dan
What’s your take? Is this a policy that would work at your organization?
