We understand that some A(wel)liens might want/need to take time off for a longer period at some point in their life and are supportive of that.

Our sabbatical policy is the following:

  • All A(wel)liens who have been with Awell for at least 3 years can take a sabbatical.

  • A(wel)liens can take a sabbatical every 5 years - so, for example, once after being 3 years at the Awell and once after being 8 years at Awell.

  • The sabbatical can take up to 3 months, of which 4 weeks are paid. The rest is an unpaid holiday.

  • The sabbatical has to be announced to the manager at least 3 months in advance (excl. exceptional circumstances)

Note: we have a separate policy for parental leave.
