Many managers make a poor fist of switching off when on holiday, regularly checking emails
Many managers find it difficult to switch off from work duties when on holiday, according to research by sunshine.co.uk. Of the 2,113 UK employees in management positions who were polled, as many as 76% were glued to the internet or a mobile phone when on a trip with a partner and children.
A quarter admitted to actually doing work on their last trip away and 86% confessed to checking the availability of Wi-Fi in their accommodation before booking. All of the respondents had been abroad in the last 12 months. Some 65% said they tried to be discreet about checking emails, while 44% claimed their inability to unwind had caused friction with those on holiday with them.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Clarkson said people who are constantly in work mode are at risk of suffering from burnout. He added that it is important to get away every so often to forget about work and relax. One way of easing tension while away is to arrange
travel insurance, which offers peace of mind during your stay.
