UK - The BBC fears its holiday trading scheme could be a victim of its own success.
The media giant has given staff the option of trading their holidays since November.
Since then around 1100 have each bought up to an extra five days to top up their annual 25-day entitlement from 400 colleagues who do not want to use all their holidays.
The BBC – which has more than 25,000 staff – says it is pleased with the success of the scheme. But it has voiced concerns that the scheme could become difficult to manage if too many staff want to start trading.
The system works by employees arranging to “buy” holiday from those who have unused days or unwanted days through the corporation’s human resources department.
A BBC spokesman said: “We can handle current figures perfectly well at the moment but it has been very popular and if the majority of staff took advantage of it, then it might become tricky to cope with the numbers.”
