What you need to know
What can we say? Workday is a fun place to work, with lots of smart, interesting people. Still, you may occasionally need a break from all the awesomeness. That’s why we offer paid holidays, paid time off policies, and an array of leave options that can help you rest, recharge, and take care of yourself—or your family members.

Time when you really need it
Loss of a family member—or a beloved pet. Roof blowing off in a freak windstorm. Spending spree by hackers who made off with your personal info. These are all very bad things—and very good reasons you may need a few days of compassionate leave.
Paid time off
Paid time off for hourly employees
You’re putting in important time toward Workday’s success. And you deserve time off because, hey, everyone can use a break sometimes. Hourly Workmates accrue paid time off (PTO) as follows:
- Full-time hourly employees: You accrue up to 18 days of PTO per year at a rate of 5.54 hours per pay period. You won’t accrue PTO during any unpaid portions of a leave of absence.
- Part-time hourly employees: PTO accrual is prorated according to your preset full-time equivalent (FTE) work hours. For example, if you work four hours per day or 20 hours per week—in other words, 0.5 FTE—you’ll accrue 2.77 hours of PTO per pay period.
Once you reach the PTO accrual limit of 180 hours, you cannot accrue additional PTO until your accrued PTO drops below 180 hours.
In addition to company holidays, you’ll receive two floating holidays—16 hours or a prorated amount if you work part-time. If you’re hired after June 30, you’ll receive one floating holiday in your first year.
Flex time off for salaried employees
We know you often have to be flexible in when and how much you work to meet the needs of your projects or team. So, for salaried Workmates, Workday offers a flexible time off (FTO) policy, which allows you to take time off from work when you need to. We trust you to maintain a good balance between your time off and your work responsibilities. Just be sure to get advance approval from your manager in Workday.
Additional time off policies
- Voting, two hours at the beginning or end of a work day
- Jury duty
- Compassionate leave (including bereavement), up to 10 days
- School activities
- Bright Days Off make it easy for Workmates to get paid while volunteering in their community, up to 3 days a year.
