Give annual leave in hours not days
A simple technique to improve staff engagement is to allow staff to take off just a few hours rather than having to take off a half day or full day.
Rather than providing 24 days of holiday, convert this into 180 hours. These could be called off on an hour-by-hour basis.
This can be particularly useful if people need to take a few hours, such as attending a school play, or need to see a specialist such as a divorce lawyer.
