Sabbaticals: The Hottest New Benefit?
Sabbaticals may become a new employee benefit, as they are relatively inexpensive for employers (especially if the sabbatical is without pay) and appreciated by employees looking for greater work-life balance. It also helps employers avoid the alternative: having a restless employee quit.
Executives have been negotiating sabbaticals ranging from three months to a year for some time, and the trend is trickling down to other professionals.
