Productivity increases in tandem with more annual leave

A study by the America’s International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans found that employees who take their annual leaves are 40% more productive and less irritable, depressed, forgetful and easily fatigued compared to employees who don’t take annual leaves.

Taking a break makes employees more productive. Ask anyone how they feel after a vacation, and they will say that the holiday makes them feel more focused, refreshed, ready and raring to start work compared to the latter part of each year when breaks are less or fewer.

 

Automate Absence and Vacation Management

Studies have shown that employees tend to work better after leave – they become less prone to accidents, they become more productive, and less likely to be stressed out. Employees who take their full annual leave entitlement are also less likely to file sick leave.

After leave an employee feels recharged his motivation for what got him to working with the employer in the first place.

  • 44% of employees do not take their full annual leave entitlement because they are too busy!
  • Employees who take their annual leaves are 40% more productive and less irritable, depressed, forgetful and easily fatigued.
  • Without breaks employees become 65% less creative and miss deadlines.
  • Well rested employees are 38% less prone to work place accidents.
  • Employees who take their full annual leave entitlement are also 28% less likely to file sick leave.
