Long vacations are a good time to hang out, but many people still choose to work.
According to a new study from LinkedIn, most employees said that success in their careers really means being able to spend time with their families and disconnecting from work.
But nearly 70% of employees still don’t disconnect from work email or communications while on vacation.
The most common reason? They don’t want to fall behind, as cited by 56% of the survey’s participants.
This problem is paramount for at least two demographics.
First, just five percent of those who identified themselves as “business leaders”—defined within the study as business owners and C-Suite employees—said they “never” check email when on vacation compared to the 30% of workers overall who said they stay unplugged.
