Last year, in order to support wellness within our agency, CCNY launched a new Paid Paid Vacation perk.  On a bi-monthly basis, a random name is drawn from a pool of full-time staff.  Once a name is pulled, that person must take two days off with an added bonus of $300 to use during that time. These days are in addition to their normal paid time off. The staff person must use the money towards something fun, i.e., not pay off existing bills, etc.

I truly appreciated being the lucky winner of April’s Paid Paid Vacation drawing.  My wife and I enjoyed a long weekend in Canandaigua, New York, the highlight of which was going to see Roger Daltrey perform The Who’s 1969 rock opera “Tommy” in its entirety alongside The Who touring band and a full symphony orchestra at the CMAC.

The concert took place on June 30th and with the two days of paid time off we rolled right into the July 4th holiday for fun and relaxation.  Thank you, CCNY!
