7 remote and hybrid companies that will pay for your vacation—they’re all hiring

A significant portion of American workers are not utilizing all their paid time off (PTO). According to a recent Harris Poll survey of 1,170 U.S. workers, 78% admit to leaving PTO unused. The primary reasons cited include busy schedules, heavy workloads, and a relentless “pressure to always be available.” Additionally, the rising costs of travel—up 15% from 2019 according to NerdWallet—further discourage employees from taking vacations.

Despite these challenges, paid time off remains a highly valued benefit. The Harris Poll found that 48% of U.S. workers would prefer more PTO over a higher salary. To combat burnout and enhance employee retention, some companies are adopting innovative strategies, particularly within the travel industry. These initiatives include offering four-figure stipends for travel and assisting with vacation costs through flight or hotel credits.
