Working from home with unlimited vacation days may sound like an endless beach party, but sometimes it isn't enough to get people some vacay!
We asked remote companies to tell us more about their vacation practices. They are encouraging their team members to take the time they need for a vacation to stay healthy and sharp at work.Buffer"Like many other tech companies, we used to have an unlimited vacation policy as a way to encourage employees to take vacation days when it felt best to them.
When unlimited vacation didn’t seem to be working, because it’s hard to tell how much time unlimited really is, we switched to a minimum vacation policy this time last year."
Unlimited vacation days are based on trust and trusting your team is everything, especially in a remote company where people work autonomously.
Minimum vacation policy also makes very much sense as it helps to build good practice in a team to take vacations regularly. It can be difficult to take some time-off when anyone else never does.
Healthy vacation practices will keep your team happy!
