Japan has been ranked as the most hardworking nation in the world in terms of its full-time workers using their allotted paid holidays, according to a survey conducted by Ipsos Global and Reuters late last month.

Full-time workers in most countries get paid holidays apart from regular weekend and public holidays. However organisations do not force workers to avail of those holidays, many people do not use these vacation days. Ipsos Global and Reuters conducted survey on 13,000 people across various countries and checked the likelihood of employees using all their vacation days.
