Nothing wrong with a Brit of holiday work
WORK-mad Brits can’t switch off when they go on holiday with more than six in 10 of us taking our jobs with us.
A survey of 4,000 people conducted by recruitment company Monster revealed the difference between workers in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Of all the Brits that were asked if they work on holiday, one in six (16 per cent) said they work every day while one in five (22 per cent) said they work occasionally.
And the study shows a significant difference across Europe.
An overwhelming 73 per cent of Germans ‘never’ work on holiday while in America, a third (37 per cent) find it unacceptable to be asked to work while on vacation.
Sales manager Jason Price, 42, from Guildford, Surrey, admits checking his phone for emails when he’s on holiday.
He said: “I do it all the time, it’s just a habit. I even do it when I’m abroad.”
