Do You Use Your Vacation?

Best Western and Wakefield Research found that more than half of all US Travelers find it hard to use all their allocated vacation days.

My goal is to not let a single vacation day go unused!  I turned down an offer from Amazon to work with another Fortune 500 company which not only had a more generous vacation policy, but which also encouraged employees to use ALL their vacation time each year.

Sure, Amazon gave employees a small stock grant and higher pay, but I knew that I’d be unhappy with only 2 weeks of vacation in the year.  The trade-off was certainly worth it for me!

Sending Email On Vacation

Best Western also found that 55% of all employees can’t go a week without checking email, and I’m guilty of this.  But checking my email once a day – in the morning or night – actually made it easier for me to go on vacation.

That’s because folks at the office know that they don’t have to cover for my emails and I have less to do when I do get back in the office.
