Zappos Pushes for National Leap Day … Day

Fast Company: “On February 29, everyone at Zappos will get a paid day off. It’s the first time, since the company opened, that its call center—normally open 24 hours a day, all year—will ever close. Their reasoning: Leap Day is extra time, and we should probably use it for something we normally wouldn’t do.”

“On Change.org, the company is leading a push to get 100,000 signatures on a petition to make Leap Day an official national holiday. Because the petition only ensures that congress and the president will have to consider the idea—and they’ll still need support—they’re also trying to convince other companies to give employees a paid day off, and pushing for states to adopt it as a holiday too.”
