Hilton Urgent Vacation Care Center is the latest undertaking by Hilton to champion vacations and leisure travel while understanding the needs and expectations of travelers around the world.
The brand's "2013 Hilton U.K. Vacation Deficit Report" released of 2,000 workers in the U.K. finds that workers enjoy just eight out of their average 24 days of annual leave because the rest of the time is taken up with "domestic admin."
Findings also reveal that more than half of the British workforce have not taken a holiday in at least a year, more than half continue to check work emails and take calls while on annual leave, and 5 percent have not had a holiday in 10 years or more.
To build public awareness of Vacationitis, Onion Labs, the creative services division of leading American news satire organization The Onion, is depicting common symptoms through humorous cartoon memes created exclusively for Hilton. Visitors to vacationcarecenter.hilton.com can download the memes and easily share them with friends they suspect may suffer from Vacationitis.
