    While we're all for this kind of initiative and have very flexible work practices in our business, it would be nice to see a piece about how this kind of policy would affect companies of different sizes. It seems a lot less viable for smaller firms where there might not be other team members to cover for higher amounts of paid leave - and the cost is relatively larger to the business.

    We have been offering unlimited PTO since January 2016. In the first full year the average number of days taken was 28, a 7% increase on the previous contracted allowance. Business turnover grew 52%, profitability increased, staff absence through sickness dropped and engagement was at an all time high. expand absolutely will continue to offer this benefit.
