Preparing for a PTO wave this summer. Is your organization ready?

"If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original."

Read this article this morning from The Atlantic, it was a very interesting take on vacation, PTO, and the comparisons of American vs European work-life balance.

The article begins by diving into the 26% decrease in vacation and PTO requests through Zenefits (a popular HR platform) and why so many felt uncertain of their futures at organizations if they did take time off, not to mention the inability to actually go anywhere and do anything.

However, with vaccine rates increasing, many plan to take extended PTO and to begin more normal traveling behaviors this summer. 

Judge vaccinations as you will, this trend could have huge implications ahead for companies as their staff plan to take longer PTO at the same time. Are you planning and getting ahead of this at your organization? How are you addressing this trend with your fellow employees, if at all?
