As Canadians return from the holidays, new research finds they will work half as many hours to catch-up. According to a recent survey, 71% of working Canadians report having to put in a substantial amount of extra work before and/or after a one week vacation. The good news is , Canadians are putting in half as much extra working time around a vacation, when compared to last years 21 hours. This mean that many won’t be chained to their desk following the holiday break.
The survey found only one in three workers take all their allotted vacation time annually and more than a quarter reported taking less than half of their allotted time.
