What would you do with an extra day off work?

What would you do with an extra day off work?

Imagine having an extra paid day off work to do anything you want? What would you do? Attend a cooking class? Go rock climbing? Sip a mimosa on an exotic beach? Or simply go and watch a movie?

Here’s what some of our Big Day Off winners from 2016 did with their extra time away from the daily grind:

Ben Mcleich - Dutch Media at the snow (3)

Ben McLiech won a day off and decided to make the most of it by going on a skiing trip. Sounds like an amazing way to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors.

Jo Wade - Slater & Gordon volunteering at kid's school canteen

Jo Wade spent her extra paid off volunteering her day off at her daughter’s school. What a wonderful way to give back to the local community and support her school!

Maree Hunt - SCIA with sister at the Beach

Maree Hunt made a long-weekend out of her Big Day Off, she went camping and checked out the beach with her sister.


On top of winning an extra paid day of leave, by buying tickets in the draw, these guys helped raise vital funds for people with spinal cord injuries all over Australia (that must be why they’re all wearing such big grins).

With so many great ways to spend a day out of the office, registering or nominating your workplace for the Big Day Off is a no-brainer. Click here to get involved today!
