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.
