No vacation nation: 41% of Americans didn't take a day off in 2015 | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

In a new survey conducted over the first few days of 2016, Skift asked Americans about how much annual leave they took in 2015. The top-line result is predictably shocking, with almost 41% of Americans not taking a single day of annual leave in 2015. Almost 17% said they took fewer than five days of leave in 2015. On the other end of the spectrum, about 13% of Americans said they took over 20 days of leave last year. This is happening amidst some heightened awareness, discussion and movement about the need for more holidays and time off for Americans. The tech and start-up industry is leading it, with some marquee companies - including GE, Netflix and LinkedIn - starting to offer unlimited holidays to their employees. Find out more.
