Today is National Plan For Vacation Day! Since we started Road Unraveled, we have enjoyed sharing our vacation ideas with you—and we have really enjoyed hearing your stories about the vacations you take. Still, one of the biggest challenges is that it’s simply hard to take time off from work. Many companies discourage vacations, and plenty of us worry that taking time off might suggest we aren’t committed to our jobs. It’s easy to see why vacation is often a bad word to use at work! We would like to change that.

Today, we are thrilled to launch our new workshop the Business of Vacation! This interactive, in-person workshop is designed to help companies to create a culture of vacation. Taking time off has incredible benefits for employees and for the workplace as a whole, and we can’t wait to help companies discover how vacation is a key to improving innovation, productivity, and engagement.

Learn more about the Business of Vacation—and let us know if we can help your company unlock the power of vacation to improve organizational culture!
