A poll of 2,500 staff commissioned by Regus shows that 39 per cent of British staff will not be relaxing properly in the months ahead, and instead going on 'workcation', as it has been dubbed.
Of this proportion, eight per cent will work for more than three hours a day, which is akin to part-time working hours in some sectors.
Some 25 per cent of respondents said they will be conducting 'business as usual' while on holiday, and attempting to take care of their normal daily tasks while also indulging in the usual holiday activities.
Katherine Rake, chief executive of the Family and Parenting Institute, said that employers should introduce company policies banning themselves and other staff from contacting those taking time off.
"If they can pledge to save the summer holiday in this way, they will be rewarded with more productive workers returning to the office," she commented.
