Perfect example I read about this morning. The company Coinbase is giving employees 4 weeks of "recharge" time this year in addition to their PTO where they are essentially shutting down the company for a week. They did it with one week and two weeks in prior years. This is the kind of forward and innovative thinking that Metlife pretends to be involved in but they are sooooo not doing anything close to this.
And it isn't just Coinbase. Bumble and LinkedIn did similar to cope with COVID burnout.
"Coinbase is not the only company looking to give employees more time off in an effort to keep employees happy and prevent a mass exodus during the COVID pandemic. LinkedIn gave the entire company the week off in April of last year, and the popular dating app Bumble did the same in June."
F this company and their empty promises about being innovative and caring about employees.
