Survey: 4 In 10 Workers Don’t Use All Their Time

Menlo Park, Calif. — May 19

As summer approaches, employees are busy planning long-awaited vacations. But a new Robert Half survey shows 39 percent of workers won’t use all the paid vacation time they’re given.

The reasons: 38 percent are saving days in case they need them later, while 30 percent fear falling behind at work.

The national study was developed by specialized staffing firm Robert Half and conducted by an independent research firm. It is based on 436 telephone interviews with U.S. adults working in an office environment.
