1.2k employees where 750 with PTO weighed in about their thoughts, stresses, and benefits of PTO.

Here’s what they found: 

  • Working in the hotel and hospitality industry only promotes PTO for clients as this industry was found to give the least amount of PTO, offering employees only 11 days a year. 
  • Start planning a vacation for next summer, nearly 1 in 10 admitting to having more than 11 unused days. 
  • Don’t work on a planned vacation: Nearly 77% of people who work on vacation feel stress and 40% fought with their significant other for working on their baecation.

Of the respondents, those in the hotel, food services, and hospitality industry were given the fewest paid vacation days. These employees received only 11 PTO days annually, three days less than the median. Meanwhile, employees in the transportation, warehousing, and utilities industry were among those given the most vacation days: 15 on average. Other industries that provided 15 PTO days included: technology; information services and data processing; government and public administration; finance, insurance, and real estate; education; and the media industry.
