Liz Pope - Head of Technology at Holiday Extras
10 percent time is a benefit we’ve had in our Tech team at Holiday Extras for over 5 years. It’s helped with improving engagement and performance, and is very valuable for retention and attraction, which in the world of Engineering is priceless!
However, as 10 percent time is such an ingrained part of our team culture it can be hard to keep it fresh, keep people engaged and and for it not to be taken for granted. It’s important that ‘real work’ doesn’t creep back into the 10% time and that we make the most of our time given to learn and innovate.
In my talk I’ll share tips on how to keep learning and development time fresh, keep people engaged and also how to share success back with the rest of the business and management, so that they continue to support it.
