Many trav­ellers go di­rect to work

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job -

AL­MOST one in five trav­ellers go straight to work af­ter their hol­i­day with­out even go­ing home to freshen up or drop off lug­gage.

The 2012 Stayz Hol­i­day Habits Report shows 17 per cent of work­ers make the most of their time away from the of­fice and re­turn from their break on the day they re­turn to the work­place.

It is a more com­mon trend among sin­gle peo­ple aged be­tween 18 and 30.

A sim­i­lar pro­por­tion (18 per cent) can­not switch off or re­lax from work while they are on hol­i­day and can­not break their daily tech­nol­ogy rou­tine of check­ing emails or log­ging on to so­cial me­dia, even though their travel com­pan­ions get an­noyed with their ex­ces­sive tech­nol­ogy use.

About half, or 47 per cent, are phoned with work re­lated ques­tions by col­leagues while they are on leave and 23 per cent say work­ing causes ar­gu­ments with part­ners or friends while on hol­i­days.
