After Google, PwC India declares a company-wide holiday for its employees this Friday – offers time off for a 'well-deserved' break
PwC Indiahas introduced a ‘Pens down Day’ on Friday, turning it into a three-day weekend for its employees.
- The consulting firm is giving the day off to its employees for them to unwind.
- Earlier, Google too had announced a company wide holiday on May 22, giving the employees time to address the work-from-home-related burnout during the coronavirus pandemic.
In an email to its employees the company said, “We hope the clear three-day weekend will give you the time to recharge and spend time with your loved ones, on activities you have not been able to focus on or simply in whatever way you’d like to unplug”.
But the ‘off day’ will be deducted from the employees’ earned leaves. Employees who already have prior meetings scheduled for the day will be able to take up a day off on another day this month.
