Some firms are now offering surprise “pop-up” holidays, as a way of fighting staff burnout. Opinion is divided, however, on whether such spontaneous days off help employees or cause even more stress.

“If people see that things like this are happening spontaneously, that’s an indication that the company is being responsive, and responsiveness is the key thing,” Jamie Gruman, a professor of organizational behaviour at Ontario’s University of Guelph, told the BBC.

Samantha Ettus, author of The Pie Life: A Guilt- Free Recipe for Success and Satisfaction, disagrees. She thinks surprise holidays are helpful only for “someone who’s single and has a spontaneous lifestyle”.

Companies know that pop-up holidays can’t be their only weapon in the fight against employee stress. Lisa Finnegan, LinkedIn’s vice president of international human resources, explains: “There’s still a lot of work to do on employee wellness, and we’re going to need to keep coming up with creative ideas.”
