Bosses, please note! The long vacations your employees take have a side effect - the holiday may actually fuel their desire to quit their jobs.
Nearly 70 per cent of employees are more likely to look for another job after coming back from a vacation, a new study has found.
The study was based on surveys of more than 1,200 job seekers who visited an online jobs site.
"Vacations are a great time for self-assessment. They offer free time, relaxation and detachment from your day-to-day routine," said Mary Ellen Slayter, a career advice expert for Monster.com.
"They also provide the mental clarity needed to carefully consider the life changes required to remedy the source of your strife," she was quoted as saying by the website 'BusinessNewsDaily'.
It's the way vacationers feel at the end of the trip that really helps push them toward finding new work, Slayter said.
"As your vacation comes to a close and you are faced with your impending return to work, your disposition can be an important indicator that it's time to make a change," she said.
