Managing employees

Will giving employees unlimited vacation leave improve productivity?

It seems like a bit of a strange concept doesn't it that letting your employees take as much time off as they want means that more work will get done. For some companies like Red Frog Events  in America, it helped them grow to a 45 million dollar company. What are your thoughts? Do you think it will work for your business?

Hey Wendy,

This one is tricky to answer, in my opinion it depend on the industry and employee. It has been proven before that people who have long brakes are more productive. It has to be a balance, if you work hard you should rest in equal amount otherwise there is a risk of burn out.

I always say that if the job is done you can do whatever you like so it will depend on that factor.

I would and will endorse this since I use to take long vacations too.

Cheers

Forgot to mention, the fact is if you do what you love and love what you do you feel like you are on holidays anyway :)

If it's a model that works, the whole world would have embraced it already.

What you're talking about isn't a product. If you're lucky enough to have employees who are all self motivated and conscientious, then it may work. How many people do you know that work the 8-9 hours when "working from home"? I can't think of any.
