At Netflix, the vacation policy is audaciously simple and simply audacious. Salaried employees can take as much time off as they’d like, whenever they want to take it. Nobody – not employees themselves, not managers – tracks vacation days.
That’s an example to follow. After all, it’s the work that matters. If you work is taken care of, what difference does it make how many hours you spent doing it, or how many hours you spent not doing it? More companies should adopt this approach.
