Bumble is giving its staff a week off to recharge and combat burnout.

"As vaccination rates increase and restrictions ease, we wanted to give our global teams a paid week off to rest and refresh after what’s been an incredibly challenging time for everyone,” a Bumble spokesperson told NBC News.

All 750 employees of the company will be getting a week off.

The company will continue its normal operations on June 28.

Bumble has employees in Moscow; London; Austin, Texas; Barcelona, Spain; Sydney; and Mumbai, India. 

Concerns have risen about burnout among employees due to the changing work environment from the pandemic this past year.

Bumble, the dating app where women have to message first, has grown into one of the most popular dating apps, with its CEO becoming one of the few self-made billionaires.

Bumble has been working with other dating apps to promote vaccines by adding “vaccination badges” to its app and other incentives. 

Other companies have been exploring similar ways to help their employees combat burnout during the pandemic.

The New York Times is giving “Global Days Off” to its employees this year that add to personal days off the employees already receive. 

The Hill has reached out to Bumble for comment.
