….Planning vacations while working! According to a new online survey of visitors to Monster.ca, only 43% of 1439 Canadians said they “do not work at all” during vacation.
“Many Canadians seem to be missing the point when it comes to taking holidays”, said Monster Canada vice-president of sales and general manager Peter Gilfillan, noting that using vacation time wisely is crucial to maintaining a good work-life balance.
While most Canadians stay connected to work while vacationing, a further survey by Monster.ca revealed that 50% planned their vacations while at work!
If you are planning your vacation while at work, you are taking away from your employer and if you are working while on vacation, you are taking away from yourself. Either way, someone is losing so keep the holidays all about you and the work all about the employer!
