Millennials & Vacations — An Interesting Observation

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Millennials get a lot of knocks for being self-absorbed employees and sometimes for not even being good employees. It’s a generalization but the knock is there. Here’s an interesting observation of millennials from a study done by the staffing firm Accountemps.

It found, millennials might be much better employees than the myth that surrounds that generation. For one thing, they are more apt to check in with the office while on vacation than their older counterparts.

Here is the info:

  70% of those 18 to 34 say they maintain some contact with the office while on vacation

  Just 39% of those age 55 and over do the same

  56% of all workers say they check in with the office while on vacation

  44% do not check in at all

While checking in with the office while on vacation seems weird to some of us, Michael Steintz of Accountemps said the results show some employees need to check in once in awhile to fully relax. Cutting contact completely is a bit more than they can handle.

“Employees need time away from work to rest, relax and recharge. Yet for an increasing number of people, totally disconnecting from the office can have the reverse effect and add stress,” Steintz said.

Professionals on vacation in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Charlotte check in the most. Those in Cleveland, Minneapolis, Denver, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City check in the least.

A last note. Employees plan on taking an average of nine-days off this summer. That’s down from 10 last year.
