Executive search firm Charlton Morris has introduced unlimited holiday for its senior consultants to help staff achieve a better work-life balance.
The Leeds-based organisation is offering unlimited holiday to consultants who have been with the business for two years or more as a way to reward staff for their continued hard work, as well as provide employees with more freedom and flexibility to encourage a better work-life balance.
Eligible employees will be able to book time off work whenever they want. Currently, 14 of the organisation’s 41 employees are eligible for the benefit.
The unlimited holiday is one of several benefits introduced in the first week of January. Other new initiatives include reduced working hours and extended lunch breaks.
The new benefits will sit alongside established initiatives including subsidised gym membership, social outings and holiday incentives to destinations such as Las Vegas and Barcelona.
Andy Shatwell (pictured), managing director at Charlton Morris, said: “We pride ourselves on doing things differently, and we want to stand out from the crowd when it comes to recruitment firms in Leeds. One thing we really wanted to move away from was the idea that recruitment is a ferocious industry which involves high turnover of staff and, while lucrative, [it’s] not sustainable.
“These measures were all geared towards making Charlton Morris a place to have a successful career for our current and future employees, and to make us stand out from the competition.”
