As the first scheme of it's kind in Hong Kong, unlimited paid leave is an incredible perk which makes the company offering it stand head and shoulders above the rest.
It is amazing not only because it allows employees to take as much paid leave as they need - who doesn't love that - but also because of the message it sends to current and future staff.
It screams we know we employ superstars that we want to keep, we trust that they do an excellent job and want to do all we can to make their lives as enjoyable as possible.
It's also interesting to note that this policy change came as a result of global research focussed on creating a results-oriented workplace full of engaged employees. It clearly highlights that micro-management and strict rules don't create success and are not what employees need.
I raise my hat to this innovative company and hope more follow suit in both their attitude to their employees as well as the amazing benefits for work/life balance they offer.
The policy will allow employees to focus on producing exceptional results through better control over their work schedule while allowing room for creativity and personal growth. Mr Lee Seng Huang, Group Executive Chairman, Sun Hung Kai & Co. Limited said, “We entrust our employees with the freedom to gain deeper ownership of their jobs.
