UK company DICE have made a name for themselves, for allowing their employees to take days off for hangovers, as reported by Joe.ie.
The London ticketing firm have made allowances for their staff members to take up to four hangover days off a year. The rule has been written into the contract of all full-time employees, meaning more nights out partying into the early hours of the morning.
The new contractual condition can be put into action by simply sending the boss a WhatsApp message. There is one stipulation though, the night of boogying on the dance floor has to be in someway related to work. This equates a working event, as they are in the ticket selling business and tend to attend many live performances.
The founder of DICE Phil Hutcheon, when speaking to Grazia, said they allowed for the new rule as their team all share the love for live music.
“All our team live for music “, Phil said.
He also said they want all staff to trust each other and not feel the need to lie, especially if they are out experiencing live music late at night. This, he says, is when all the best deals tend to happen.
“Some of the best deals in the industry happen after a gig. We trust each other and want people to be open if they’re out late experiencing live music. There is no need for a fake sick bug”, he added.
So there is method to their madness, but could this happen on a farm? Would a worker be allowed a day off from milking or tending the cattle after attending a late night session with a cattle dealer? Or how about a milker having a few late ones with a Milk Producer?
The chances are you’ll be put back in your place fairly sharpish. The cows aren’t going to feed and milk themselves after all.
