Personal Days

As a VMware employee, you will be provided with paid time to be used for additional vacation, outside activities, scheduled medical appointments, and/or personal business.


You will be granted Personal Days based on years of service with VMware according to the following schedule:

Personal Days Entitlement

Years of Service Personal Days
Less than 2 years 0 days
2 years 2 days
3 years 4 days
4 years 6 days
5 years 8 days

Carry Forward

Personal Days must be taken within 12 months from the date they are granted. They are not interchangeable, transferable, cumulative, and cannot be cashed out. If you are terminated before the day off is taken, it will be lost.

Scheduling Personal Days

  • You are required to notify your manager at least one (1) business day prior to taking Personal Days. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that work load does not restrict you from taking personal days.
  • Once agreed with your manager, enter your Personal Days in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Miscellaneous Time Off (Hours).
