How are our PR peeps managing optics ;or getting ahead of bad PR) for large holiday gatherings, talent feeling pressured to join a group celebration?

Really looking forward to my upcoming vacation time and the moment I get a message saying if I could reschedule my time off because “everything is hot right now”.
Goodwin just formalized it’s Recharge Policy. For attorneys who hit hours, they can take a vacation on the firm the next year: $5,000 for juniors, $7,500 for mids and $10,000 for seniors (starting at 5th years). I’ve always felt like Goodwin does a very good job encouraging vacations (most people I know take 3 to 4 weeks including a 2 week vacation). At my last firm, vacations were rare. I’m thrilled with this program, particularly since it helps address burnout.

Same day cancellations? I’ve been freelancing at agency in a mostly full time capacity for a few months. Working remotely, billing hourly. They are very particular about billable time and nitpick downtime. The budget has been cut and hour reduced. I requested a schedule so we can all plan accordingly. Now I “show up” in the morning and am told there is no work. I would normally bill for 4 hours but they insist they don’t guarantee hours. I don’t even know how to respond anymore. Suggestions?
