More companies moving to discretionary time off policies

Earlier this month Chicago-based Tribune Publishing announced that it would offer all of its salaried employees what’s called discretionary time off. This allows employees to take all the vacation they want as long as they’re meeting their work goals.

Psychologist and management consultant Robert Ferguson co-wrote a piece in Time magazine about the practice and joins us to talk about it. Photo: Flickr/deb roby
