You probably have at least one employee who’s putting in double- or even triple-duty, handling others’ jobs with a minimum of complaints. These overextended workers deserve a break. But can you afford to give them some wellearned, paid time off? You can if you dangle incentives for other employees to volunteer to work extra hard and pick up the slack. Offer small rewards such as a gift certificate to a local merchant or a week of free lunches in the company cafeteria. That way, the “harried hustler” can enjoy a vacation while opening up a chance for another employee to step up and earn more modest (but still appreciated) recognition.
