The Minister for Tourism, Martin Ferguson has today launched Tourism Australia’s No Leave, No Life campaign to encourage Australians to use their accrued leave and $900 stimulus bonus on a local Aussie holiday.
The No Leave, No Life program has been developed in conjunction with the business community to offer employees and employers the tools necessary to achieve a work/life balance, whilst attempting to boost the local tourism industry.
According to Ferguson, the campaign is about Australians “getting behind the thousands of small businesses and the half a million jobs that are supported by our home-grown tourism industry.”
He has urged Aussies to consider putting their $900 bonus towards a great Australian holiday.
“In these difficult times, I hope all Australians will stop and think what they can do to kick our economy along and help keep the jobs of their fellow Australians – a great Aussie holiday is a great start.”
He also believes that, by encouraging staff to use their accrued leave, employers are “sensibly managing their liabilities and creating a more productive, happier and healthier workforce.”
