Why More Time Off Is Better For Everyone

Here at FullContact, we know that life is about so much more than just work. People are happy and productive when they get adequate time to focus on their families and friends, hobbies and passions, and mental/physical/spiritual health.

That’s why in 2020, we started to offer Mental Health Days when we realized our team wasn’t taking full advantage of their unlimited Vacation Time Off (VTO). While we’re proud to offer a generous vacation package, we also understand that there’s an added benefit when everyone is off work simultaneously. Our team can relax and rejuvenate without emails or Slack messages coming in that could tempt them into working when they should be, well, doing anything besides working.

When thinking about the future, our senior leadership decided how to support the team further—even more company-wide time off! That’s right. We’re INCREASING our company holidays from the 2021 list by a total of 5 more days in the U.S. and 6 more days in India!

And that’s not all. In addition to extra holidays and mental health days, we’re also adding Summer ½ Day Fridays and a Day of Service. To put it into perspective, the national average for company-provided holidays in the US is only nine days a year, and the national average for company-provided holidays in India is only 13 days a year. We are proud to offer almost triple the US national average with 26 days and more than double the Indian national average with 27 days!!

Below is the list of holidays for our employees. While we recognize this isn’t an all-inclusive list of the numerous holidays and traditions that exist, we encourage our employees to take advantage of FullContact’s available time off benefits to enjoy and celebrate their cultural, religious, and/or family traditions.

If you’d like to join a team that wants you to truly cherish your time away from work, apply here!
