One in Four Workers Plan to Work While on Vacation, CareerBuilder.com’s Annual Survey Reveals

A quarter (25 percent) of workers, up from 20 percent in 2007, said they plan to stay in contact with work while on vacation, and close to one in ten (9 percent) said their bosses expect them to be working or at least checking voicemail/e-mail while on vacation, according to CareerBuilder.com’s annual vacation survey.

Comparing industries, sales workers (50 percent) lead the industries surveyed in the number of workers planning to check in while away on vacation, followed by 37 percent of both financial services workers and IT workers.

Taking a vacation is a great way for workers to re-energize themselves and bring fresh ideas back to the table. Does your company do anything to make sure employees are taking quality time away from work to recharge?
