It's summertime, and you know what that means. It may be time for a vacation. According to one new survey though, some of you are passing up the chance to get away.
The survey showed over 30% of senior managers they polled didn't take all their vacation days. It also showed they regretted the decision too. If they did go on vacation, about 25% of them said they couldn't relax and get their mind off work.
Another 20% said they were guilty of checking in with the office while they were away. Now, you might be asking why anyone would pass up on their vacation days.
Experts said in this market that's filled with high unemployment and decreased job stability, taking a vacation causes more anxiety than it used to. In other words, some of you are almost afraid to take a vacation.
"Using your vacation days is a smart idea, but I've had friends that don't use their vacation days, unless there's something going on in their family," said Amanda Miller, an Elkins resident.
Experts said taking a break is a good thing. Numerous studies show employees are happier and healthier, and therefore work harder, when they have some time off.
