On Friday we said goodbye to Tom our Lab Designer - who's doing some real life testing of the new Bromford Sabbatical Policy.
Under the policy Bromford colleagues will be entitled to a sabbatical every two years, for up to a year at a time. The breaks are unpaid, but it’s assumed that the bulk of sabbatical takers will be moving to paid, temporary positions elsewhere.
