What would you do? Busy Bee Edition:
You’re planning a vacation for a few days, and need days off from work, what do you do?
- Just go, and don’t tell anyone you will be out of town and have fun!
- Tell your supervisor the day before you leave that you will be gone for a few days, but don’t explain why.
- Inform your supervisor weeks in advance, so he/she can find a replacement.
- Tell one of the employees that you are leaving for a few days and arrange for them to cover you.
The correct answer is 3. Two weeks before leaving on vacation you should inform the supervisor. The supervisor will then find your replacement and/or contact your clients. If you don’t inform a supervisor and leave a vacation, there is no guarantee that you will have your job waiting for you. Clients expect to be told in advance of any changes that will happen with their services, and this includes vacations.
