Billionaire businessman Richard Branson is at it again. Already known for shaking things up in the business world, he just announced that all 170 employees of Virgin Management and Virgin Unite now get unlimited vacation!
That’s right, employees can take a day off whenever they feel like it, or stay out of the office as long they want, no questions asked. Just as long as their work gets done.
Here's the exact quote from the Virgin blog, 'cause obviously it sounds crazy:
"There is no need to ask for prior approval and neither the employees themselves nor their managers are asked or expected to keep track of their days away from the office. It is left to the employee alone to decide if and when he or she feels like taking a few hours, a day, a week or a month off, the assumption being that they are only going to do it when they feel a hundred per cent comfortable that they and their team are up to date on every project and that their absence will not in any way damage the business – or, for that matter, their careers!"
