BuildDirect: Vancouver company offering employees unlimited vacation

A Vancouver company is revamping its holiday policy, giving their employees unlimited paid vacation.

BuildDirect, a Vancouver-based website that sells home improvement and building materials at wholesale prices, unveiled the plan earlier this week.

“We ask people to deliver a lot of aggressive results and we feel like that needs to be balanced with taking a break,” said Heidi Rolston, the company’s vice-president of people.

Employees aren’t limited to how much they can take per year, but only four weeks at a time is the company’s “rough” standard, Rolston said.

All of the company’s roughly 300 salaried employees will be paid for their time off.

“We got a round of applause [after the announcement],” Rolston said. “We feel there’s huge value in them taking time off to spend time with family and friends, pursue their interests, travel … We’re confident people won’t abuse it.”

Companies like Netflix, Virgin and LinkedIn all offer similar policies.
