Marketing software company HubSpot ditched its vacation policy a year ago, along with paid-time-off forms and vacation rollover.
Now, if employees want to take time off, they just take it.
CEO Brian Halligan calls the standard corporate vacation policy “a relic of an era when people worked 9 to 5 in an office.”
The Internet and mobile devices allow today’s employees to work where and when they want, including late at night and on weekends.
“I always thought it was strange when an employee would hand me a paid-time-off form for a weekday, but never hand me a credit form for the Saturday and Sunday they just put in,” Halligan writes on his blog (http://blog.hubspot.com/). “Since we are not tracking weekend days worked as credit, the weekday time off just didn’t seem fair.”
Halligan notes that the organization’s managers “trust that the folks will use common sense with regards to taking an appropriate amount of time off.”
