I have a holiday/PTO booked and cannot travel. What should I do?

It’s important to consider that we all need time to recharge and relax and employee wellbeing is critical at this time. Please consider still taking holidays and staying at home.

If your line manager agrees to your holiday/PTO dates being changed, then please action this in Workday. Here’s a guide on how to do that.


I would like to change holidays/PTO that I have already booked in Workday. Can I do so?

Please discuss this with your line manager, as it might be possible to change your dates. It’s important to consider that we all need time to recharge and relax, so you might want to consider still taking holidays and staying at home.

Has anything changed with the maximum PTO accrual?

No. The maximum accrual of PTO remains at 240 hours. Please speak to your line manager if you would like to amend any current PTO bookings and then action this in Workday.


I would like to take time off to volunteer to support the coronavirus effort. Will the company support me?

In the US, we already have a volunteering policy which allows for one day (eight hours) PTO for volunteering, subject to line manager approval.


I would like to flex my hours of work to do some local volunteering to support the coronavirus effort. Will the company support me?

A number of people have asked whether they could flex their hours of work to enable them to do some local volunteering. If this can be managed in conjunction with people’s day job in order to support the coronavirus effort, then this can be discussed and agreed with your line manager.

We continue to review our volunteering guidelines.
