Best of The New Way We Work: Is unlimited vacation as great as it sounds?
On this episode, The New Way We Work is back with another one of our greatest hits. This one is from late 2019 and it’s a fun bonus episode where Kate Davis debates VP of Entertainment, Scott Mebus, on the controversial topic of unlimited vacation. The idea that employees can choose how much vacation they take has inspired passionate opinions on what’s appropriate for workers to expect, what a company hopes for in offering something so elusive, and how it plays out differently in practice than in theory. This is another one that’s gotten more relevant with time as the pandemic saw burned our workers taking even fewer vacation days.
