No Leave, No Life - CEO letter/email
Suggested introductory letters have been provided, in both a formal and

Dear team,
This is just a friendly note to introduce you to an initiative that we, as an organisation are getting involved in. No
Leave, No Life is a program that encourages you to take advantage of well-deserved leave whenever best suits. It’s
our firm belief that by taking the occasional short break or holiday you’re doing good things for your physical
wellbeing and getting the chance to reconnect with friends and family. The occasional bit of leave helps you
recharge the batteries, which in turn helps this organisation be the best it possibly can be.
There’s a website – noleavenolife.com – with plenty of interesting tips, tools and holiday ideas for you to explore.
And you also have the chance to win a holiday every week until the end of May.
So visit noleavenolife.com when you get a chance and if you have any questions just ask myself or your manager.
Thanks
Albert J Pretend
