Pennsylvania – Taking time off this summer? For most of us, the answer is yes.

Michael Steinitz with Accountemps says it’s because the job market is so good right now. “Employees feel a little bit more comfortable with the fact that being away from work is okay.”

The average time off is 10 days. That’s longer than last year.

Steinitz says smart bosses will encourage employees to take all of their vacation.

“In order to retain employees and to have a good culture, you have to show that as an employer that you care about work-life balance.”

So go on… take that vacation. The boss says it’s okay.
