David Whitby, UK Country Manager at Glassdoor said:

“Companies are realising that you can get more out of your workforce if you create an environment where people feel it is ok to take time out and be flexible with the working week. It’s not about leaving the office early, it’s about integrating work and lifestyle. At the end of the day, employers that trust their staff to do their job to the best of their ability, and recognise that everyone has commitments and interests outside the office, will create more loyalty.”

 

A Glassdoor survey of 2,000 employees found that the average UK employee only uses around three-quarters of their annual leave entitlement. Furthermore, 44 percent of employees said that they undertake some sort of work while on holiday.
