You should definitely start looking for a new job because this company is giving their employees time off to watch Game of Thrones.
According to reports, a company is giving their employees a half-day off on April 24 so they can stay up late and watch the Game of Thrones premiere. The tech company named +rehabstudio surprised their UK employees earlier this week when they announced they would get next Monday morning off to watch Game of Thrones. From NYPost:
The half-day is now included in the company’s official holiday policy in its handbook, which was shared on LinkedIn by London operations director Emma Willis.
“We’re always trying to look after our guys and make sure we’re giving them the best work environment and social life as well,” said the company’s founding partner Tim Rodgers.
