Spring Break: Plan to Take Extra Time Off

CHI Saint Joseph Health

Spring is finally here. That means many area schools are observing their annual spring break. This is a wonderful opportunity to take time off to spend with your family. While not mandatory, CHI Saint Joseph Health is encouraging employees to use flex time around this observance, as volumes will most likely be down and many staff members are already planning to take vacation time. As always, please ensure that you follow the appropriate request for time off procedures for your department or location.

As you know, employees working in non-volume sensitive areas are required to take time off during the major seasonal holidays. Aside from the actual holiday itself, often an additional day is required, allowing employees the opportunity to enjoy a long weekend to celebrate, rest and rejuvenate. You can refer to the 2019 holiday/flex time calendar to see when these required days are coming up and plan accordingly.

Thank you for your continued service and dedication to our patients and community.
