A study carried out by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) shows that 58 per cent of workers, including those in sales jobs, took the whole period between Friday December 23rd and Tuesday January 3rd off to recharge their batteries and enjoy the yuletide.
When the 29.1 million workers in the UK are taken into account, this means that 17.5 million people enjoyed ten consecutive days away from their workplaces.
The data also revealed that fewer than a third of workers only took off the days in which their offices or places of work were closed.
It comes after Hilary Jeanes, leadership coach and human resources consultant at PurpleLine Consulting, said that companies which treated their employees well over the festive season are set to benefit from greater staff retention in 2012.
