While nearly 53% of Americans failed to take a day off within the last year and an astounding 37% of employees said they hadn’t been on a vacation in more than two years (Allianz Travel Insurance Vacation Confidence Index) — today’s workforce keeps powering through with a can-do attitude. Isn’t it time we acknowledge these movers and shakers and reward them for all that they do (you included!)?
Business travel focused hotels Hyatt Place and Hyatt House think so. Starting now through October 25, 2016, the brands will work together to honor these high-achieving individuals in an innovative way that pays homage to how we’ve recognized extraordinary people in the past — with a personalized, modern-day take on the classic statue in their first-ever #WhySettle Spirit Awards.
