Back in the 90s, Trilogy had an open vacation policy. Sometimes, people joked that the "no vacation policy" was really the "no vacation" policy.
Having an open vacation policy saves HR overhead and counting days doesn't make sense when people are putting in more hours than they care to count.
But I believe this type of policy also requires a high level of maturity in the organization to avoid a feeling of guilt when taking time off.
Do you see this as a trend or a fad? Does it scale?
