New business policies may result in worker stress and burnout and lower expenses for Redmond.
Microsoft will end its four-weeks-per-year policy for salaried employees working in the US starting the following week. This policy move is intended to provide US staff members greater freedom but, unsurprisingly, will also benefit Redmond financially. Ten corporate holidays will be provided to employees, in addition to unrestricted leave. They will also be permitted to take time off for jury duty, illness, and mental health problems.Some tax consultants consider unlimited paid time off (PTO) to be a “highly problematic matter,” and according to one website, the success of such a policy “heavily depends on the company’s internal atmosphere and execution.”For the workers, the results of this transition may be inconsistent. Keeping a healthy work-life balance and increasing morale may benefit from it.
