More than half of all companies in the United States offer their employees PTO, or paid time off. This can be a phenomenal perk and a great way to avoid burnout, improve your productivity, and allow you to recharge your batteries on a regular basis. However, studies show that PTO goes unused for a variety of reasons, which can create a stressful professional atmosphere and a poor work-life balance. A good rule of thumb is to use your PTO every year. If you, like many employees, find yourself with excess PTO this time of year, consider taking a trip to beautiful Vernal, Utah.
