Michael Kirven, 38, and Eric Berridge, 39, didn't worry about a vacation policy when they started Bluewolf, their New York IT consulting firm, in 2000. As the startup added employees, the founders let staff take paid time off for holidays, travel, and rest when they wanted, without asking permission -- just letting managers know as a courtesy. About 18 months later, with 10 employees, they made their ad hoc policy official. "If you want to take a vacation, take it," Kirven says.


Freedom!

Finally! It's about time someone came up with a structure that allows people to contribute their skills and knowledge, make money, and enjoy their lives! Bravo to Kirven and Berridge for this bold move!

I'll take any COVID-19 vaccine that is made available to me right now.
I'm not sure. I need more time to make an educated decision.
I'm not interested in getting a COVID-19 vaccine at this time.
