It's no secret that the shortage of talent is a challenge for companies and encourages them to review their copy to attract and retain the best profiles.
The behavior and expectations of employees towards the business world are changing. It is no longer just a question of having a "good salary" or "good working conditions" – it must also be possible to benefit from a working environment in which it is possible to flourish and where responsibilities and autonomy are required.
The constant growth of teleworking in France confirms this strong appetite.
As the leading job market and HR practice observer, Indeed, the world's leading job search engine, has implemented unlimited paid leave in its organization as of January 2016. Accountability, autonomy and trust are the hallmarks of entrepreneurship among Indeed, a culture that has allowed the establishment of such an initiative.
Charles Chantala, Commercial Director of Indeed France, commented: "Employees are motivated and aware of the value of unlimited paid leave. They are engaged on a daily basis and this is reflected in the performance of the company. In this context, the role of a manager at Indeed is also crucial. Its mission is to guide and support employees, while leaving them the autonomy necessary for everyone to feel invested and become an entrepreneur of their missions."
Beyond unlimited paid holidays, Indeed has taken great care to ensure the ergonomics and comfort of its workspaces: offices of adjustable height, seats with different seating, rest room, etc.
"Unpaid leave of absence exists in all countries where Indeed is present. At Indeed, we are very committed to the values of trust and individual accountability of our employees," says Seval Foullane, HR Partner at Indeed France. "Unlike other organizations where presenteeism is important, at Indeed we do not take a suspicious look at employees because only their performance matters. They have clear goals and great flexibility in organizing their working time. As long as our employees are efficient, they are free to organize their time and absences freely. This vision is particularly appreciated because we focus on the results and not on the modalities of their work."
