'One In Five' Work On Holiday
Holidaymakers waste annual leave by taking their work away with them, a survey shows.
Nearly a fifth check emails and 6% go as far as preparing entire work projects while on a get-away-from-it-all break, insurance company Churchill revealed.
Its survey also showed that 31% keep in touch with the office while they are away and 23% expect to be contacted by work colleagues while on holiday.
Overall, 16% take work away with them, 23% worry about work while away and 46% get stressed out immediately before returning to the office.
Those most likely to work while away are sales professionals, management consultants and people in recruitment.
People in administration, customer services and engineering are more fortunate and rarely take their work on holiday.
Mike Ketteringham, head of Churchill Travel Insurance, said: "The research shows that we are a nation of workaholics and if we aren't taking work away with us on holiday, we're worrying about our to-do lists and forthcoming projects.
"Holidays are all about relaxing, making the most of time with friends and family and experiencing new things.
"However, in the future, we'll be much more likely to naturally combine holidays with elements of work."
