澳洲Banker曾休假108天 公開信引起共鳴

人生在世,有咩開心得過放長假呢?你自問最長放過幾多日假期?

為公司拼搏,有時候也要為自己生存。

話說澳洲Macquarie Bank一名高級主管Dean Firth,辛辛苦苦做了25年,為了多點陪家人遊山玩水,自言曾經放過自己一個安息長假( sabbatical leave ),足足放108日。

去年12月Firth於職場網站上發表公開信,解釋自己放假的原因,日前獲傳媒報道,引起了不少打工仔共鳴。

對很多工作至上的打工仔來說,放長假是不可思義的。一畢業出來,轉眼間就10年無放長假,有時可能是因為有假不能放,有時是因為公司沒有安息長假政策,有時是根本沒有假期,公司政策年年轉,偶爾就要你清假。

Firth也是其中一個,他解釋,過去25年,工作一直比家庭優先,所以放安息長假,是真的想為家人放一次~~

My decision to take the sabbatical was the result of many factors but was particularly motivated by my reflection around the importance of time and choice. Throughout my career I have often prioritised work over family and whilst I am at peace with these choices I wanted to make this choice for my family this time. Time is undoubtedly our most precious commodity and whilst our 2 children were still young enough (and they think I am still cool enough to hang around with), I particularly wanted to spend this stretch of uninterrupted time with them.

108天休假,一半時間陪了在兩名小孩身邊,自己也順道發展一下新興趣。

最後Firth說出了重點,他感謝有一位上司,無條件支持他放假。

小編覺得,Firth是太好運了,坐上了好位置,遇到好上司和不計較的同事;小編見過有傳媒機構容許記者放兩個月長期,結果就得罪咗成Team同事~~

始終香港普遍行業都無長假文化,人手已經少,仲要走咗個,你話其他人點頂兩個月?
