Going Unplugged: Do Workers Really Disconnect During Summer Vacation?
Not long ago, vacation was truly vacation
There were no mobile devices or wireless internet to keep you connected to the office while you sat on the beach or beside a campfire. And if there was an emergency at the office, your colleagues just had to make do. But in today's digital world, you have a choice on vacation: To connect or disconnect. There's no right or wrong answer, but each option has different effects on your stress level before, after, and during vacation. Using Survey Monkey™ Audience, we surveyed over 1,000 workers to find out how their vacation plans play a role in their productivity and how summer habits differ across ages and genders.
