Indian fantasy sports platform Dream 11 has adopted an interesting policy called the “Dream 11 Unplug” that will fine employees who disturb colleagues on holidays.
As per Indian media reports, the company will fine it’s employees PKR 272649.94 for violation of policy.
In a LinkedIn post, the company wrote: “At Dream11, we actually log off the ‘Dreamster’ who is unplugged, off from every possible Stadium communication platform, be it Slack, emails and even WhatsApp groups. We do this to ensure absolutely no one from the Dreamster’s work ecosystem can contact them while they are on their well-deserved break.”
The post said that allowing employees to cut off from all company systems and groups is one of the best perks. “We are not bothered with work calls, emails, messages, or even WhatsApp for seven days. This helps us spend some quality time doing what we love. And for me, it’s time to head to the mountains. I, for one, do not feel guilty about not having a sufficient network. It’s the most distinctive form of unplugging. This disconnected time also helps one rejuvenate, relax and come back feeling fresh, happy, and renewed energy to give one’s best performance,” a Dream 11 employee said.
