January 26th is 2021’s National Plan For Vacation Day – make plans now to visit Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region!
Here are just a few ways taking your paid time off helps make you a better employee, person, and economic contributor:
National Plan for Vacation Day, celebrated on the last Tuesday of January, is a day to encourage Americans to plan their time off.
Each year, Americans fail to use 705 million vacation days, and with those days, $255 billion in economic opportunity is lost. That’s why the U.S. Travel Association launched Project: Paid Time Off, an initiative to prove the personal, professional, economic, and social benefits that taking time off can deliver.
Sometimes, planning is the hardest part of actually using your vacation. U.S. Travel has made it easier than ever with their new calendar tool. Plug in your annual days off, book your mountain getaways and family reunions all at once and then export the file to your Outlook Calendar to share with friends and family.
