LinkedIn has become the latest company to offer unlimited annual leave to its employees
The professional networking site will offer all staff the ability to take annual leave with no minimum or maximum days in mind, in a similar way to other larger companies such as Virgin and Netflix, which have also granted unlimited annual leave to workers.
To give their employees more flexibility and a sense of empowerment, they announced a big shift in the vacation benefits they offer in the United States. Instead of the traditional vacation model of offering a fixed number of hours or days off per year, they are implementing a new approach called Discretionary Time Off (DTO) starting November 1. With discretionary time off, there is no set minimum or maximum amount of vacation time employees can take in a year. Instead, employees will work with their manager to request time off when they need it.
What a great initiative
