With the ONS releasing data that UK productivity levels have fallen, what could add to this problem?
Just how important do UK employees value holiday time, pensions, promotion and salary?
Today’s working week hardly leaves a moment for rest. Long hours at the office and little rest have become a part of most managers’ careers. Some feel forced into this cycle, while others take pride in how long they spend working and their constant availability to clients.
Holidays aren’t as restful as they should be, with three quarters (76%) of employees admitting to taking work away with them when they depart for annual leave and 81 percent checking in with the office while they’re away.
Over half (61%) of UK employees find their relaxation time disrupted by work when taking annual leave, finds research from the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).
Despite the perhaps obvious benefits to getting away from the workplace for a week or two, more than half of people have been found to prioritise work over a holiday with loved ones, according to new research from hospitality company Diamond Resorts International.
