Wow! Just a couple of weeks ago we got a notice from our HR department that in the "interest of employees, the annual leave policy is undergoing a change. Rather than the 9 annual holidays, there will be only 7 and the remaining 2 will be added to the leaves that employees can take in a year".
This was without any warning or surveys. At the outset it might look beneficial but it is not. As it is we never make full use of the allocated leaves for the year. The new policy means we have to work 2 extra days per year and the company gets to bill more hours to the clients. :(
