Mandatory vacations are coming to corporate America

Mandatory vacations may yield higher productivity and greater employee satisfaction than traditional vacation policies or unlimited vacations, according to a new study from Harvard Business Review. Under traditional vacation policies, many employees feel pressure to maximize enjoyment from their two- or three-week breaks,, though the looming anxiety from work before and after their time away can make relaxation difficult. In recent years, many companies began to offer unlimited vacation policies, though some of those firms have found that employees are nervous about taking too much time off and don't want to be perceived as lazy. As a result, many employees end up taking less vacation time.
