Q: the only a small percentage of the paid vacation offered is actually taken. とはどういう意味ですか?

Excuse my poor Japanese.

For "This is what they have offered."

offer = 差し上げる

For "You can take 3 weeks of paid vacation":


有給休暇=paid vacation
週 = weeks
許る = to permit ("can take" is the same in meaning)

actually = 実際に

"Take" in this sentence is like "use". So, "take a vacation" = 有給休暇する

I am happy to answer more if you are still confused.
