15 Branded Summer Travel Essentials

“Leaving vacation days unused has become an unfortunate national pastime,” a report by the U.S. Travel Associations begins.


Nationally, less than half of workers — 47 percent — actually take their earned paid vacation time, the report states, which shares that those who do take the time for some R&R, are significantly happier than those who do not.

Encourage your employees to use their paid time off this year by equipping them with branded travel items fit for any adventure. The added benefit of branding the items brings your brand wherever they go and helps further their emotional connection and loyalty to the company.

Burnout is no joke

And about two-thirds of full-time workers experience it.

The Gallup researchers also tell us about 44 percent of those the firm surveyed (out of 7,500 people), sometimes feel burnout; 23 percent feeling burnout frequently.

Employee burnout can hinder a company’s employee retention and acquisition programs, spike the costs associated with it, as well as bump up company health care costs. Company culture and reputation is placed at risk.

“In short, employee burnout can trigger a downward spiral in individual and organizational performance,” according to Gallup researchers.

The clincher is that burnout is totally avoidable, and it all comes down to how a company manages its employees and acts upon company culture promises of well-being.
