VUMC launches flexPTO Donate program
VUMC employees can now donate flex paid time off (flexPTO) directly to colleagues in need. Called VUMC flexPTO Donate, the program allows any employee to directly donate flexPTO to a specific employee who is experiencing a hardship due to a qualifying serious personal or family medical situation. They must also be eligible to receive the donated flexPTO under this program. HR and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) team will oversee the program and work together to distribute the donated time to the qualifying employee. For more information, visit the HR website.
