Work from home and get lots of PTO? Sign us up!

Life & Travel

It's no secret that the pandemic hit all of us hard, and now that restrictions have been lifted, offices have reopened, and work seems to be getting to a new normal outside of quarantines and isolation, we all want to take our lives back. If you only learned one lesson in the past year, it's to look out for No.1, i.e. yourself, and practice a bit more balance in self-care.

Research has shown that many of us were overworked and pretty much burned out, and we missed out on vacations last year, too. The average work day extended at least an hour, and millions of vacation days wasted away.


Well, now that the advocacy for remote work has gotten stronger, so has the prioritizing of vacation days so that companies can not only attract top talent, but keep their current workforce.
