National Plan for Vacation Day | December 2023 Insider
December 15, 2023 | Holidays & Observances
A Celebration of Paid Time Off
National Plan for Vacation Day, observed on the last Tuesday of January, is a call to action for professionals, particularly in high-demand sectors like ours, to prioritize planning their Paid Time Off for the year. This observance aligns with Guest Services’ commitment to employee well-being and holistic development. In this fast-paced environment, where dedication to providing exceptional experiences is paramount, it is equally important for our team members to take time for personal rejuvenation. Utilizing PTO is critical for maintaining a healthy work-life balance and contributes to overall job satisfaction and productivity.
PTO is highly valued by employees, with national surveys indicating that a significant majority of people believe having paid time off is essential. Despite its importance, many employees do not fully utilize their PTO, with around 46% of the country’s workers not using up all of their available time off.
Planning vacations has demonstrable benefits, including improved mental health, increased creativity, and enhanced workplace morale. It offers an opportunity for employees to disconnect, explore new places, engage in leisure activities, or simply relax, leading to a refreshed and revitalized return to work. This proactive approach to vacation planning, encouraged by National Plan for Vacation Day, ensures that employees can schedule their time off in a manner that benefits both their personal needs and the operational requirements of the company. So let’s start planning!
