Office workers failing to take annual leave

A third of UK office workers are failing to take the holiday leave to which they are entitled, according to a new study from recruitment company Adecco.

The new research also found that a further 15% of people only take their full holiday entitlement because they are forced to by their employer.

The research also found:

– Over a quarter (27%) of people have felt guilty about requesting holiday. Of this, half (50%) felt guilty because they felt they were leaving their colleagues in the lurch

– A fifth (22%) of people have lied to their employer about what they are taking holiday for

– A third (33%) of people experience added stress as a result of their colleagues taking holiday

– Half (48%) of workers would cancel holiday for work commitments

Alex Fleming, Operations Director at Adecco, said: “UK workers seem to have adopted a range of bad habits associated with their holiday leave. It is important to remember that annual leave is a legal entitlement and people should be encouraged to use it. It seems employees are reluctant to take their holiday leave and this could be for a range of reasons, including fears over job security and leaving their colleagues with increased stress.”
