Martin Agency gives employees more time to disconnect

by | Apr 19, 2022

There are times during the year when it can feel like a stretch to get to the next long weekend, reports Marketing Brew. 

To address this problem, continues the Marketing Brew post, “in today’s era of burnout and resignations, some agencies have been offering employees more paid time off, among other perks. The Martin Agency is one of the latest to amend their time-off policies, adding holidays to the company calendar to ensure that employees receive a three-day weekend at least once a month.

In the last two years, Carmina Drummond, chief culture officer at the Martin Agency, Richmond, VA, said the company moved to unlimited PTO; however, she’s noticed employees continue to work even when they’re technically out. “I think people say they take vacation, but I don’t know anybody that really truly disconnects, and we need to learn it’s a discipline to do that,” she said.
