Hi – we’re considering trialing ‘unlimited holiday’ – I’ve read lots of different articles on the pro’s & cons but not so much on the actual logistics of managing unlimited holidays. is anyone running an unlimited holiday approach or have experience that you’d be happy to share? Many thanks
We have an unlimited holiday policy, however contractually we’ve call this ‘a minimum of 25 days plus bank holidays’. In our policy we talk about ‘if you need more, ask your manager’. We cover this in induction to explain that they would not be able to do their job if they took two weeks a month of. It’s about being an adult and being reasonable (both ways).
Our HRIS is set up for 25 days but employees can exceed their entitlement.
This works well as it gives a number to aim for and also insures people take a decent holiday. Our average is around 28 days. Highest number of days taken in past years 39 days.
It also works for calculating holiday accrual during MAT/PAT leave.
Thanks Vanessa – that seems a sensible approach!
Hi Siobhan I work with Vanessa and was responsible for implementing our unlimited holidays policy when Pure Planet launched four years ago. If you would like to have a further chat through this do let me know. Rich (People Director Pure Planet)
Hi Siobhan. We’ve just introduced uncapped leave. We have no maximum but we do have a minimum – 20 days plus bank hols.
We are looking at unlimited holidays, would anyone be king enough to share their policy.
