Whether you’re an individual employee with big ideas for a career break or the head of human capital who wants to influence the executive team to roll out a sabbatical program, here are four easy steps you can take to introduce the concept to your employer:
- Arm yourself with our special report, Time as the New Currency: Why an Increasing Number of Companies are Finding Career Sabbatical Strategies to be Worthy Investments. Read it. Then send it to your company’s decision-makers.
- Allow us to personally reach out to your company by emailing us the contact information of the person(s) who would be most interested in a sabbatical program’s unique benefits. We’ll only mention your name if you give us permission to do so.
- Check out the other companies that offer sabbaticals. Are there any of your company’s competitors on our list of Workplaces for Sabbaticals? Does your employer aspire to be like any of these best places to work?
- Set the first example. Negotiate a sabbatical with your boss. Then return from your time away with powerful insights and momentum for your team and your company.
