For CEOs, teachers, entrepreneurs etc, the benefits of being
refreshed and reinvigorated both personally and professionally are
so clear that there is no single profile for who needs a sabbatical, or what that break
should look like. An increasing number of savvy companies are
developing sabbatical policies for their staff because the positive
impact on employee retention and workplace happiness is huge.
Indeed, 25% of Fortune's '100 Best Companies to Work For' offer
their staff sabbaticals. It's never been more socially acceptable
to prioritise life over work. There's no longer any stigma about
putting our wellbeing first, in whatever form that takes.
