What You Need to Know
Hitachi Vantara provides you with time off benefits that allow you to rest, manage your personal life and balance your priorities.
You receive 12 paid holidays each year. Employees who are not regularly scheduled to work on a day recognized by Hitachi Vantara as a holiday are eligible to take a day off in lieu of the traditional holiday. The alternate day you take off must be within a week of the recognized holiday, unless pre-approved by management, and you must record the day in myTime using pay code: holiday taken.

Flexible Paid Time Off
Exempt employees can take as many days off per year to recharge, take of personal matters or enjoy a vacation, as long as you have your manager’s approval. You must request your time off with as much advanced notice as possible, though we recognize your time-off needs may occasionally come up at the last minute.
Flexible paid time off does not replace paid holidays, volunteer time off, sick pay, bereavement leave, jury duty leave, short- and long-term disability and any other leaves provided by Hitachi Vantara.
Non-exempt employees receive vacation time based on years of service:
- You accrue 120 hours (15 days) of vacation per year from your hire date until you hit your fifth anniversary.
- Starting on the first day of your fifth year of service, you accrue 160 hours (20 days) of vacation per year.
You earn vacation each pay period throughout the year. When you have reached the maximum number of days you can earn (15 or 20 days, depending on how long you've been with Hitachi Vantara), you won’t earn additional vacation hours until you take time off and your vacation balance falls below the maximum.
All approved vacation time needs to be recorded in myTime using the appropriate pay code.
Feeling under the weather? Need to care for a sick family member? You receive up to 80 hours of sick pay each year to take time off to care for yourself or for an ill family member.
Part-time employees receive 40 hours of sick pay each year, and interns who have been employed for at least 90 days receive 24 hours of sick pay each year.
You can take up to 40 hours of your annual allotted sick pay per calendar year to bond with your newborn or to care for a child who is placed in your home through adoption or foster care. Unused sick pay does not carry over from year to year.
If you need to take more time off than that, we offer benefits for extended absences from work.
Volunteer Time Off
We offer volunteer time off (VTO) to encourage you to take time off during the workweek to participate in volunteer activities at schools, Hitachi Vantara-sponsored community events or nonprofit charitable organizations that have IRS 501(c)(3) status.
- Full-time employees receive 8 hours of VTO for the calendar year.
- Part-time employees receive 4 hours of VTO for the calendar year.
VTO is for local opportunities only, and you need your manager’s approval before taking time off. Submit VTO requests directly through myTime.
