Recording: How 5 Months on the PCT Made Me Better at My Job, Mar 12, 2018

In 2016, Square Root COO, Elizabeth Schwartz, put one of the company's award-earning programs (unlimited paid time off) to the test with a 5-month sabbatical to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. The lessons she learned along the way helped transform the company's culture and business long-term. In this session, we'll discuss how other companies can find success with programs like sabbaticals, offering ways they can make it work for not just the employee -- but for the company as a whole.
