People are increasingly paying more attention to how their jobs affect their health.
They want a healthier work-life balance that includes more paid time off (PTO) and are willing to change jobs to get paid sick days and more vacation time.
Paid time off refers to planned time away from your job where you still receive pay.

Your vacation time is the number of PTO hours or days you can take off from your regular work schedule. Companies try to offer paid and unpaid vacation time to their employees.
What you receive depends on the structure of the company. They may have an all-inclusive PTO policy where you get a bank of hours to use as needed.
Unlimited PTO is another benefit that some employers have started to offer. This trust-based structure allows people to take time off when they need it.
