BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Workers planning more ‘workations’


Many American workers are embracing the remote-work era and maximizing their PTO with ‘workations’ dominating travel plans in 2022, according to a study by Passport-Photo.Online.

In a poll of 1,117 U.S. workers, 67% went on ‘workation’ in recent months to “recharge their mental and emotional batteries” since 2020, and another 94% plan to ‘workation’ again in 2022.

While Zoom calling your boss from the beach is probably not a great idea, the survey did find that ‘workations’ had a positive impact on productivity. Based on the survey results, this trend is good news for employers, and may offer a hands-off way of improving employee retention and performance.

Analyzing how ‘workations’ affected workplace performance, 86% of ‘workationers’ strongly agreed that their on-the-clock getaway boosted their productivity, and 84% were now more satisfied with their job, survey results show.

Looking at how, when and where workers are taking their jobs on the road, Passport-Photo.Online found the majority are taking relatively long working hiatuses. Most took trips 1-2 weeks long (36%), 32% took 3-4 weeks, and 13% took over a month.

With long-term trips being the most popular choice, it’s understandable that the most common choice of stay among survey respondents was with friends or family at 43%.
