Tip of the Week: Out of Office

January 1, 2024, The Association

New Year, old topic…

We’ve talked before on this blog about how vacation was once—and may still be—a dirty word in the nonprofit world, with unused time off hailed as a badge of honor. We’ve also talked about the importance of leaders modeling the behavior they wish to see in their staff. So how about planning your 2024 vacation days now?

Scheduling the time you’ll be away now will not only give you something to look forward to, it’ll ensure you don’t lose any PTO. And it can help with scheduling your team’s major projects, and give you time to cross-train employees who are ready to step up when you’re away.
