Blood Donation

VMware provides time off for donating blood in accordance with Greece law.


An employee voluntary donating blood is entitled to one paid day off on the day of the donation. VMware can request evidence of blood donation (e.g., appointment confirmation). This leave can be used twice per year.

Scheduling Blood Donation Leave

  • Discuss your Blood Donation Leave plans in advance with your manager. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that workload does not restrict you from taking Blood Donation Leave.
  • Once agreed with your manager, enter your Blood Donation Leave time off in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Miscellaneous Medical/Health Time Off (Hours). Your leave should be recorded in blocks of 8 hours (1 day).

Please note: This information is an overview of Blood Donation Leave only. To check any other eligible leave entitlement please refer to the Greece Time Away from Work Policy [VMware network access required] for detailed information.
