The health service is promoting a paid off-day for employees to schedule routine doctor check-ups

Compared to the rest of the world, workplaces in the U.S. do not give as many days off to their employees. Therefore, sick days are precious days off that we try to save for emergencies. In an effort to advocate for and promote overall better health and well-being, ZocDoc proposed a new day called the Unsick Day. The concept is a scheduled opportunity for people to take off work and attend routine doctor appointments.

Zocdoc reports that 49 percent of employed Americans are more likely to choose a company or stay with one that offers time for preventative healthcare. Things like yearly physicals, eye exams and dental checkups are pushed aside to avoid spending time off of work. This can lead to bigger health problems in the future.
