Bosses vs. Workers: Who Takes More Vacation Time?

bosses workers vacation timeIt's hard to find anyone who doesn't think a vacation is a good thing. Beyond getting to explore different parts of the country or the world, vacations have been shown to improve mental health, prevent job burnout and even enhance creativity. Yet if you're guilty of ending the year without using most of your vacation days, you're not alone -- at least among your peers. Your boss, however, might be a different story. According to a new CareerBuilder survey, 81 percent of managers have taken or plan to take vacation this year, compared with 65 percent of full-time employees. While that number is up from 61 percent in 2011, the number of vacationers did fall well below pre-financial crisis levels. In 2007, 80 percent of full-time workers went on vacation or expected to take a vacation that year.

Take a look at the infographic below for more vacation statistics. Don't worry about getting caught reading this instead of working -- chances are your boss is on vacation anyway.
