A four-week holiday can make employees do better at their job. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Some people take the view that workers perform better if they are compensated with an annual vacation of one month. I totally agree with this view and will explain below.
Firstly, a four-week holiday will motivate the workers when they are back at work. This is because employees will work better for an employer who supports them and provides good working conditions. For example, research done at a company concluded that providing a long leave from work boosted the employee’s satisfaction with their employer. In contrast, workers reported if they felt undervalued and were not compensated with a good vacation they would feel dissatisfied and not do their best at work.
Secondly, an important benefit of a long holiday is the psychological value of reducing stress. Often employees face tremendous pressure to meet targets at work. Many will work overtime and weekends. Consequently, it becomes hard to balance work-life and home-life. For instance, if a worker is under pressure to hit a tight deadline, they might work all day and night, often neglecting families and friends. This pressure can impact upon their health too. However, if an employee is given the four-week vacation, as proposed, she/he will have enough time to to relax. Taking a break from work can provide much needed relief and a release from the unremitting tension. Subsequently, the employee will re-discover their mojo and come back to work in a happy frame of mind.
In conclusion, considering the benefits offered by a long holiday, I strongly agree with the view of providing a four-week annual leave to all employees.
