Who We Are
What We Do
Help You Achieve Your Goals
At Restoration Vacation, we combine science, smarts and soul to help you determine EXACTLY what you and your employees need to restore yourself and build a new resilience support process for your organization… and we help you deliver the results.
Our typical client has:
An identifiable, mission-critical set of employees who work very hard and, as a result, may be at risk of burn-out and voluntary separation from the firm.
A set of policies or programs aimed to support employees’ resilience (these could be minimal or extensive, but a typical client is aware of the benefits of a resilient workforce).
Some or all of their mission critical employees who do not utilize resilience programs and/or paid time off (estimates indicate that over 700 million paid vacation days went un-used in the U.S. in 2017).
Few or no formal processes for turning planned vacations into an organizational development opportunity.
A typical engagement starts with collaborating with senior management to define the scope and goals, critical employees to include and current policies and practices around resilience, PTO and vacations. Then we would likely deploy some variation of the following steps:
Conduct workshops for critical employees that include initial resilience and culture assessment(s).
Process the assessments and provide an overview to senior management around trends and key cultural conditions.
Guide the launch of an integrated resilience process for the organization.
Coach individuals and groups to define travel types and needs.
Provide vacation planning workshops to develop vacation action plans.
Provide management development workshops and tools to prepare for successful departure, work continuity and reentry for all stakeholders.
Conduct post-vacation surveys and group debriefs
Report results to senior leadership and support sustainability planning
Our goal is to help you and your employees find the best path to creating a better workforce through integrated resilience practices, starting with paid time off. Make Restoration Vacation a part of your strategic organizational development process!
