Employers, this one is for you.
Here are a few reasons why endorsing employee sabbaticals is a win-win:
Building the right company culture takes work, and sabbaticals are a good place to start.
Almost half of the annual workforce turnover is related to poor work-life balance. Sabbaticals can help get the balance, leading to a decrease in workforce turnover.
If your employees feel heard, they’re more likely to stick around. It’s not just common sense, it’s proven too.
A study from the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that the benefits of taking a sabbatical lingered long after participants returned.
Take it from us – the 40-hour sabbatical is a creative cleanse. You’ll likely return clear-minded, energized and ready to hit the ground running when you’re back at work.
"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
