LinkedIn gives entire company the week off to prevent burnout

LinkedIn employees worldwide are getting a paid week off starting April 5.

The entire company is getting the time off as an opportunity to unplug, recharge, and avoid burnout, reported CNN.

“We wanted to make sure we could give them something really valuable, and what we think is most valuable right now is time for all of us to collectively walk away,” said Teuila Hanson, LinkedIn’s chief people officer, who joined the company in June.

Since everyone is off at the same time, that means workers aren’t inundated by emails, meeting notes and project requests piling up in their absence, reported CNN.

“You want the goodness of your vacation to last a little bit when you come back,” Hanson said.

The week off extends to the majority of the company’s 15,900 full-time employees. A core team of employees will continue to work for the week, but they’ll be able to schedule time off later, the company said.

The company started to operate remotely more than a year ago and has been surveying its workers regularly. Last summer, the surveys revealed a shift in employee sentiment.

“I think the reality of the weight of the pandemic really took its toll during those months. That was a heavy time. That is when we were seeing: ‘wow there is clear burnout.’”

The company created an initiative called LiftUp!, which includes burnout training for managers, no-meeting days and mental health resources.
