Will workers want more vacation? — You betcha

With the economy in recovery will workers be more inclined to take all of their vacation time this year?

That’s the question being asked on challengeratwork, a blog by the global consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

Challengeratwork reports that an Expedia.com 2009 survey found that 34 percent of workers on average did not use 3 vacation days and only 10 percent took extended vacations of two weeks.

“Some of the decline in vacations last year was undoubtedly due to worker concerns about using vacation with job security still in such a precarious state,” Challangeratwork says. “Will the expected economic recovery lead more workers to use their vacation time in 2010?”

You bet they will.
