Why Google Axed Its '20% Time' Motivational Policy

Why Google Axed Its '20% Time' Motivational Policy | BUSS4 | Scoop.it

"The policy that gave rise to some of Google's most iconic products--Gmail, Google Reader, Google Talk, and more--is being axed. Employees previously used the search giant's 20% time perk to work on side projects one day a week. It's a policy that's taken off in Silicon Valley, with other companies following suit for out-of-the-box ideas. The 20% policy, which used to apply to all employees, had narrowed in scope over the years. Even before its removal, engineers had to seek approval from management, who for the sake of productivity were discouraged from green-lighting independent projects." | by Alice Truong
