You know you’d benefit from a week out of the office to chase a dream,
but does your employer feel the same way?
Taking a 40 Hour Sabbatical doesn’t just refresh your mind and renew your energy, your employer gets something out of it, too. And in ways neither of you have even considered yet.
While your sabbatical has more perks than we can count, here’s our top five reasons why your employer can’t say no, and even more motivation for you to go.
Ever feel like you’re just surviving, not living? Taking a sabbatical is your time to chase a dream you hold, but that life always got in the way of.
There is great joy in taking time to do something just for yourself, even if it’s just for a week. And happiness isn’t just nice: companies with happy employees outperform those without by up to 202 percent (Gallup).
Work/Life is a balance, not a competition. Without the typical worries of work at the office, sabbaticals allow your brain time to rest, and more importantly, time to realign your priorities in life.
Quite simply, how companies treat their employees reflects employee engagement. The most loyal team is the one that feels that their personal well-being is important to the company they work for.
According to a study referenced by YourSabbatical.com, sabbatical-takers experienced an 85 percent increase in productivity.
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself."Alan Alda
