A medical information company in Georgia, USA has been giving long weekends to their employees. It also makes sure that the workers are doing well and not working too much. But are extended holidays effective?

Companies show that they care for their workers by giving sudden day offs. LinkedIn, an American business and employment-oriented internet website, gives surprise rest days to its employees like Friday day offs and days without meetings. Workplace wellness expert Jamie Gruman explains that it has a positive impact on the workers because the element of surprise shows that the company cares for them. But it has disadvantages, too. For example, short notices may cause stress to parents because they can disorganize their schedule.

All workers would want more rest days, but they’re only effective if the employees trust their companies. In conclusion, companies must do it to prioritize their workers’ well-being.
