With sick days costing micro businesses at least £3,500 a year, is it time to change your policy?
I was reading an article the other day with founder of Propercorn, who grants each of her employees two ‘hangover days’ a year, which are there to promote honesty. ‘Instead of pulling a sickie, we would much rather have a phone call to say they are feeling a little rough and have decided to work from home for the day’. The initiative is there as a motivational tool to build a sense of trust between herself and her employees.
What do you think, as a small business owner would you implement this idea?
