Why not let your employees pay for some extra time off?
When they need some more downtime for that special occasion, give them the option to ‘buy’ more holiday. A day costs 1/260th of your employees’ wages, so someone on £20,000 would pay approximately £77 per day. This would be spread over 12 months, costing just £6.40 per month to buy an extra day of holiday.
If they choose to do this from their salary, may also save on National Insurance and income tax – our benefits experts will be able to tell you whether this applies to your scheme.
