E&Y could let staff choose their holiday entitlement

E&Y launches pilot schemes to encourage flexible working among staff; and considers letting them choose how much holiday they want to take

Staff at Ernst & Young could have the option of choosing how much holiday
they take in a year, as the firm undertakes a series of pilots into flexible
working.

As part of a number of pilot schemes currently operating at E&Y, its
managing partner of people, Mike Cullen, said the firm was considering allowing
staff to decide themselves how much holiday they want to take.

‘We already allow staff the flexibility of buying and selling a proportion of
their holiday to suit their personal needs and we are considering extending this
further,’ said Cullen. ‘We have not begun any kind of pilot for this yet.’

Ongoing pilots include more flexible start and finish times, and nine-day
working fortnights.

‘Above all, we want to break the “attendance culture” in the workplace by
supporting our people in what they do, as well as when and where they choose to
do it,’ he added.
