When you go on vacation do you totally unplug and relax or are you a worker bee?

According to a new survey by communications firm Movchan Agency, more than half of Americans are working while on vacation.  Some experts say it’s fear of losing a job or being replaced while those surveyed say it’s because they love their job.

Here is what the survey found:

  • 54% of people work while on vacation
  • 86% of people receive calls and messages from colleagues while vacationing
  • 70% of people have experienced mental health issues due to overworking
  • 34% of people choose to work while on vacation because they love their job
  • 29% of people work while on vacation out of fear of losing their job

Although these numbers appear high, the survey found that those working on vacation is actually less than it was in years past.  Previously, 2/3 of people admitted to working while on vacation.

Do you work while on vacation or can you relax?
