Top on jobseekers’ wish lists? Unlimited holidays

Couple on the beach

The idea of unlimited holidays was first introduced in 2004 by online streaming service Netflix, when it gave American employees the option to take as many holiday days as they like, as long as their managers know where they are and that their work is attended to.

The trend has crossed borders, making its way from Silicon Valley to Britain, with British jobseekers also asking for the benefit.

While Singapore is unlikely to go down the route of dishing out unlimited holidays to employees here anytime soon, employers will find it easier to get financial help for trying out flexible work arrangements from July this year through the enhanced Work-Life Grant. The grant can be used for expenses such as creating infrastructure for a virtual private network so employees can work from home, among other things.
