L.J. Brock, the Chief People Officer announced that:

“Given the intensity of our work throughout the year, we think this is the best way to ensure our pace is sustainable for the long term.”

It is interesting to note that major cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase intends to allow workers go for a week break every quarter in year 2022 so as to recuperate following “long days and long weeks” of serious work.

L.J. Brock, the Coinbase CPO stated in a blog post on Monday that “nearly the entire company will shut down” for four different weeks in 2022. This is part of experimentation in authorizing employees to recharge having finished intense workloads. The Chief People Officer announced that the exchange’s workers aren’t restricted to a 40-hour work week. However, they may need to “pivot at a moment’s notice,” so as to create the possibility for burnout.

Brock said that:

“We realized in 2020 that many employees weren’t taking enough time off to recharge, either because they didn’t want to force their teammates to cover for them or because they didn’t want to fall behind on their work. We knew this was unsustainable, so we scheduled a recharge week at the end of 2020 and two recharge weeks in 2021, when nearly the entire company would shut down […] Subsequent employee surveys made it clear: Recharge weeks work.”

This disclosure arises as several employees in the U.S. are kicking against unfriendly job conditions. This mostly leads to quitting jobs without actual plans or changing careers.
