Employees 'reconsider their positions' after breaks
According to a poll undertaken by travel experts, nearly half of UK employees consider a change in job upon coming back to work after a holiday.

Of the 1,500 workers polled by DirectHolidayBookings.co.uk, 56 per cent said taking a holiday made them feel unsettled in their roles.

A further 46 per cent confessed that they considered a career change after returning from a break, although a grateful 87 per cent said they valued a rest from work.

Andrew Gibson, director of the travel website said that holidays are essential in making workers feel refreshed and "recharge the batteries".

However, he also pointed out: "It's only natural that, as they return to the daily grind, many people will suffer from post-holiday blues."

Research undertaken by Credant Technologies discovered that 65 per cent of 300 city workers polled said they would contact their office by phone, email or text while on holiday.
