Even though the days still all seem a bit the same, February is coming to an end and St Patrick's Day is approaching. How can you get paid by Jameson to take time off work on St. Patrick's Day?
For obvious reasons, Jameson Irish Whiskey is a leading voice when it comes to St. Patrick's Day but, if it weren’t, this would still be a very good idea to follow.
In response to reports that state the majority of Americans haven't taken days off since the start of the pandemic, Jameson decided to convince its fans that St. Patrick's Day is the perfect time to take a break and relax a little.
The company has a new campaign called SPTO—St. Patrick's Day Time Off—which wants to encourage consumers to choose March 17 as the date to use their PTO (paid time off), which is a policy in some employee handbooks that provides a bank of hours in which the employer pools sick days, vacation days, and personal days that employees can use when they need them.
The idea of the new campaign is that people can cash in one of these unused PTO days on St. Patrick's Day and take the time off to relax and enjoy the foremost patron saint of Ireland’s celebration.
Besides coming up with this original idea, Jameson also thought of lots of cool ways to enjoy the holiday at home, releasing cocktail recipes, a Spotify playlist, Zoom backgrounds, and various home entertainment kits.
In the evening, Jameson will also be hosting a live-streamed event with singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez among other artists.
Those who are willing to take the "SPTO pledge" and commit to requesting Wednesday, March 17, off work can also enter Jameson's sweepstakes for a chance to win some cash.
“Take the Jameson SPTO pledge! Fill in your information below for a chance to win $50 to spend this St. Patrick’s Day. Pick up takeout from a local spot, get your green gear for the big day, or make sure you have game night covered - we’re picking up the tab” says the Company’s website.
