A New Way to Work

Success and change without burnout by Dr. Geri Puleo

Vacations and Burnout: Why Aren’t Employees Taking Time Off? (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)

Vacations, paid time off, and even unpaid time off are benefits given to employees – but over 33% of workers don’t take advantage of it.  While there are many reasons why 169 million vacation days are unused, studies have shown that there is a distinct advantage to companies when their workforce actually uses their vacation time.

This 8-minute “mini” webinar discusses some common reasons for unused vacation days, but (more importantly) argues that employers who encourage their workers to take time away from work achieve some significant bottom line results in their overall performance.

By the way:  the latest trend is for companies to offer unlimited (or unmonitored) vacation days to their workers.  Maybe it’s time to take that long overdue vacation!

Dr. Geri Puleo, SPHR, is the President and CEO of Change Management Solutions, Inc., an eLearning company focused on techniques to eliminate the 5 workplace stressors that create and sustain burnout:  Job Change, Organizational Change, Work-Life Imbalance, Poor Leadership and Management, and Ineffective Human Resources.  An entrepreneur for over 25 years, author, blogger, career coach, university professor, and researcher, you can see her “in action,” watch her TEDx Talk on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFkI69zJzLI.  To contact Dr. Puleo, please go to www.gapuleo.com
