Tuesday of this week was my birthday. I marked it by taking a day out of the office. Every employee who works for Benefex is given their birthday as an additional day off – it’s not taken from their annual leave allowance, it’s an additional day on top of that. We do it because we don’t believe anyone should have to work on their birthday (unless they want to!).

When I first started out working out in HR, I was told that there needed to be a policy for everything. A policy for managing absences. A policy for holidays. A policy for dress code. A policy for adverse weather. I even once wrote a policy to respond to the very specific strain of swine flu that was sweeping the nation at the time.
