Happy holidays - Netflix's unlimited policy

Netflix told its employees that from now on they could take as much maternity or paternity leave on full pay as they want during the first year of becoming a parent. This forms part of a small but growing trend of firms offering “unlimited vacation” in order to retain workers. But whether people will take the time off and allow work rivals to get ahead while they are away is questionable. A Harris survey last year found that the average American worker took just half the paid vacation he was entitled to; only a quarter of workers used up all their holiday time.
