How Vacation Helped Launch These Top Companies

Business leaders who fully embrace the power of vacation hold the key to much more than the benefit of happy and well-rested workers. Vacation provides perspective as well as the time and space to just think, outside of the day-to-day grind.

In fact, eighty-four percent of managers agree that when employees take time off, they return to work with improved focus and creativity. “Vacation is one of the few times, especially if someone has a full-time job, to be able to think deeply about a subject and create something new. Because many things are new on vacation, it naturally encourages people to transcend their perceptual thinking ruts…which can be great fodder for new ideas,” said Bryan Mattimore, author of Idea StormersHow to Lead and Inspire Creative Breakthroughs.

‘Gram a picture and share it to the cloud while sipping your pumpkin spice latte? Not without vacation. A change in routine and the freedom to think led to the birth of some of today’s most admired companies.
