NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vitiello Communications Group (VTLO) today announced it has taken another bold step to modernize the workplace, establishing a discretionary paid time off program that enables employees to take the time they need to achieve individual work/life balance. That means paid time off is not limited by length of service. Already recognized as a leader for successfully managing virtual work teams and offering a liberal work-from-home experience, VTLO further committed to ensuring the wellbeing of its team by encouraging employees to plan and enjoy time off from work responsibilities.
About 1 percent of companies in the United States offer an unlimited paid time off program, according to the Society for Human Resource Management. Among them are Netflix, LinkedIn, HubSpot, VMware, and Workday, some of which have been recognized on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Most employers increase paid vacation days as employees accrue years of service. The average employee with 20 years of service receives 20 paid vacation days, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"VTLO's values are Growth, Respect, Integrity and Teamwork – or GRIT. Our discretionary paid time off program is founded on those principles. We trust our employees to control their schedules in collaboration with their work teams to achieve optimum performance for our clients," said Nadine Green, VTLO's Chief Operating Officer.
One of the first successful telecommuters working on Wall Street, VTLO Chief Executive Officer Jill Vitiello pioneered virtual work arrangements, bringing the concept to VTLO from its beginning in 1990.
"VTLO is built on a culture of trust and engagement," said Vitiello. "Research shows that the more control people have over their environments the more they thrive. Our new discretionary paid time off program makes sure that VTLO employees take the time they need to enjoy life and recharge their creativity."
