Sabbaticals are for grownups too

By Erik Korsvik Østergaard, 8. February 2022.

Maybe you took a sabbatical after graduating from college or from university. Maybe your kid is planning one.  

Maybe you should consider it (again), as an adult. 

Mid-career sabbaticals have tripled over the past four years, according to data from the Society of Human Resource Management. People are really starting to re-evaluate their work-life, and I think this is collateral to several things:  

  • The paradigm shift in leadership towards a more human culture plays a role. 
  • The pandemic plays a role. 
  • The experiences with hybrid work plays a role.  

People are rethinking their life. And taking sabbaticals to pause, reflect, and revitalize. 

This signal is getting stronger. I love it!
