Why Vacation?
A Benefits Canada survey from 2017 found that respondents, “cited several reasons for checking their emails during a vacation, including gaining peace of mind that things were under control (55%), keeping projects moving along (51%), avoiding coming back to extra work (47%) and preventing colleagues from feeling undue stress (25%)” (Benefits Canada, 2017).

 Motivation – rewarding our hard work by taking a trip (or the increasingly popular ‘staycation’) can act as a great motivator to produce quality work as well as do so efficiently
