Nothing. That’s the whole purpose.

Zero payout - that’s the beauty of unlimited PTO... from a company’s perspective

And that it's a race to the bottom for how little vacation employees take

Not only is there no payout, but statistically employees with unlimited PTO take less time off than those with limited PTO.

I understand that’s statistics, but I’ve worked at other firms and use WAY more PTO at Huron with unlimited PTO than I was granted previously. It is what you make it. To also note, I was top rated and promoted in the same year I used ~5 weeks of PTO, so no retribution or anything like that

Nothing

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.

So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
