Work/Life Balance

According to studies, employees who take the benefit of unlimited vacation tend to take less time off  — two fewer days on average according to a Namely study quoted in a recent New York Times article.

Employers that allow workers to take as many days off as they want usually don’t have to pay for vacation days employees don’t use.

Some companies like Netflix and LinkedIn are among those that actually want their employees to have more of a work/life balance.

Even without employers looking for either a hiring tool or a way to legitimately keep their people healthy, the goal is more work/life balance are the best benefits.

“There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.” – Jack Welch.
