Seven out of ten Danes forget everything about jobs on holiday

Should, should not check the work email when the calendar says holiday?

73 pct. of the Danes are in no doubt.

They put the job away completely when they are on vacation. 21 pct. working a little during the holidays. Mens 6 pct. tells that they work a lot. It shows a survey conducted by Apollo Travel.

The vast majority of Danes (73 per cent) are good at logging out completely, putting out of office reply to the email and slamming the bars up on the deck chair when the calendar is on holiday. But a little more than one in four (27 per cent) still have a hard time not just answering emails or being available despite the fact that they are on holiday or off.

“It’s great that so many people are good at putting their work on the shelf when they go on holiday. But ideally, everyone should be completely free when they have time off. The holiday is for many the highlight of the year. This is where we have the opportunity to cultivate quality time and be present in the present with those we care about, ”says Glenn Bisgaard, sales director at Apollo Travel.

Gender differences during the holidays

If you differentiate between the sexes, women are best at letting mails be mails when they are on vacation. As many as eight out of ten (80 per cent) of the women surveyed answer that they log out entirely from work during the holidays, while less than seven out of ten of the men can say the same thing.

On the other hand, relaxation is at the top of the list for both sexes, when the sexes have to answer what they prefer to fill their holiday with.

“We are all different, and therefore it is also different what we each associate with relaxation and holidays. For example, we see a much higher proportion of men who answer that they like to fill their holiday with watching sports, while women answer to a greater extent that they want cultural experiences, ”says Glenn Bisgaard.

Another place where the sexes are divided into holiday contexts is when the talk falls on gadgets and things we can not do without during the holidays. Although both sexes put the phone in a clear first place, several women mention books as being indispensable on holiday, while men prefer to pack their iPad / tablet.
