Unused vacation can impact the bottom line


Nearly all managers (93%) say time off for employees is important, according to Project: Time Off. Yet only 39% of employees feel supported taking time off. Why the disconnect?

First, managers don’t communicate the importance of time off to employees. Second, many managers don’t lead by example – often not taking off themselves, or not unplugging when they do.

The side effects of an under-vacationed workforce – burnout, high stress, diminished creativity and productivity – directly impact overall business objectives. Companies can measure these side effects in order to quantify and remedy how much stress exists before it hits the bottom line.
