Take A Vacation? Do I Have To?

Why Vacationers Don't Check Out

According to Korn Ferry's broader survey, most professionals who admit to working while on vacation – 53 percent – say their primary reason for doing it is to respond to critical issues. But another 25 percent admitted to enjoying working while on vacation.

Mark Royal of Korn Ferry admonishes those who can't "unplug" from work while on vacation.

"Technology has made it easy for professionals and executives to sneak in a quick check-in with the office," Royal said in a statement. "Taking time to make the break from work and enjoy experiences with friends and family makes for professionals who are healthier, happier and more engaged upon their return."
