Firm offers staff up to 12 weeks of 'life leave'

An Australian-based company has rolled out a new initiative where employees are offered between six to 12 weeks of ‘life leave’ – the Independent reports.

Accountancy firm Ernst & Young hopes that staff will take ‘life leave’, which is self-funded, to travel, work part-time or simply just enjoy the time off in one of two blocks of time across a year.
