What Vacation Policies really work?

What Vacation Policies really work?

Every year when we announce our vacation or PTO policies for the new year I wonder if we’re doing the right thing; are there too many days, not enough, are we not modern in our policies, should we do the new-fangled “no limit” vacation day policy, do we need sick days, company mandated holidays?

Every year I ask myself and my team these questions and every year we just stare at each other and say “well, same as last year I guess.” So I’d like to hear what policies if any seem to work well for you or ones that have failed so we can all learn from our collective mistakes.
