When life happens for our team members, they must be able to take leaves of absence – from parental to medical leave — without worry. Too often, the fear of being implicitly penalized for taking time away from work can stymie employees, especially women.
That’s one of the reasons why Snap’s North America Advertising Sales Organization has developed a Snap Agile team, which provides an innovative approach to retention of team members who take approved leave. When a member of the US team goes on leave, their book of business is covered by a pool of team members. Not only does this initiative support client business, but it also helps retain talent because people feel comfortable taking leave while knowing their clients will continue to be supported during their absence.
