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!
