The Atlantic did a great article on how the US Vacation policy can’t be fixed – well because, there isn’t one. The above is a list of paid vacations mandated by country – and if you can’t tell – we are the zero!
I was joking with someone that vacation policies are a bit of a joke now from a recruiting perspective! People negotiate for 21 or more days – but the reality of us taking those days is almost zilch! Thus it is like our formal dining rooms – we have them in our house because we are supposed to – but only use them rarely for show.
What do you think? What is broken?
By the way – the irony is that I am writing this on vacation!
