Noth­ing wrong with a Brit of hol­i­day work

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

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.”
