Working just four days instead of five or ten weeks of vacation instead of five – what sounds like a dream is finding its way into more and more restaurants and hotels. For example at the Löwen inn in Hausen am Albis ZH, where owner Joëlle Apter (46) sent all employees on paid vacation for two months.

The Zermatt luxury hotel Cervo follows a similar model. Some of the employees have ten weeks of “free time” a year. This includes holidays, public holidays and compensation. Employees must obtain these in the shoulder season when the hotel is closed. “As a result, the employees get a year-round contract instead of a seasonal job,” explains hotel director Benjamin Dietsche (32).
