Start Using Your Paid Time Off! It’s Good for You

People are increasingly paying more attention to how their jobs affect their health. They want a healthier work-life balance that includes more paid time off (PTO) and is willing to change jobs to get paid sick days and more vacation time. You’ve worked hard to earn your PTO, and it’s time you start using it! It’s good for you, your health, and your career.

What Is Paid Time off (Pto)?

Paid time off refers to planned time away from your job where you still receive pay. Your employee handbook or contract will outline how many hours you have and how this time is earned or accrued.

It used to be typical for companies to offer both paid time off and vacation separately, but some have switched to a flexible setup that includes everything in one. Others are exploring unlimited PTO, where whatever you feel the need to take time off for is at your discretion.

Each company’s offers may vary, but several situations warrant you getting paid for taking time off work. That may include:
