Major firm gives staff two weeks’ extra PAID leave for ‘moments that matter’

They can even include ‘settling in a new puppy’ and ‘the days leading up to a wedding’

It can be used for what bosses deem “significant moments in life”. They say that could mean settling in a new puppy at home, moving house, studying for exams or even the days leading up to a wedding.

Phil Whitehead, managing director UK and Ireland at Molson Coors, said: “The way we all work has changed. “For our people to perform at their best, we recognise they need an employer that provides flexibility and understands their personal priorities. “There are often things going on in our lives which we would normally use annual leave to sort out, but this eats into actual downtime.

“We wanted to change that and give our people the ability to take care of what matters in their life without running down holiday days.” Adam Firby, HR Director UK and Ireland, at Molson Coors, added: “We’re really proud of the team culture we’ve created. “Many of our employees already work on a flexible basis, but we wanted to take this one step further.

“Launching Life Leave allows people to use their holiday as it’s meant to be – a break – whilst knowing they’ve got the breathing space to tap into extra leave for the planned and unplanned life moments.
