Less Vacation than a Medieval Peasant?

We were shocked by this article on Reuters about why a medieval peasant had many more days off work a year (around 215) than the modern American worker does today (around 8!)

As we here at Reboot Partners are well aware, taking time off is key to both an individual and a company’s health and well-being.  As the author Lynn Parramore asserts:

Ironically, this cult of endless toil doesn’t really help the bottom line. Study after study shows that overworking reduces productivity. On the other hand, performance increases after a vacation, and workers come back with restored energy and focus. The longer the vacation, the more relaxed and energized people feel upon returning to the office.

Investors Business Daily reminds us that sabbaticals can be used by a employers in a variety of professions to provides a “competitive edge to recruit staff” as well “as a tool to reward and retain long-term employees”.

Scott Allison of Allison & Partners, a San Francisco-based PR firm and one of our Organizations Who Get It, gives staff member a month’s paid sabbatical after five years on the job.

He says that Sabbaticals serve as an “inspirational model. They serve as a benchmark to strive for.”
