A new study has found that only 64 percent of Poles are able to forget about work while on holiday.
According to data compiled by the Randstad Research Institute, some 60 percent of Poles are required to be available on the telephone during their breaks.
Meanwhile, 36 percent are obliged to reply immediately to company emails or telephone calls while on holiday.
In addition, many Poles surveyed simply struggle to switch off from thinking about their occupational duties during leave from work.
“This can sometimes lead to severe mental stress or even burnout,” commented Tomasz Borkowski, of the Careers Office of School of Banking in Opole, in an interview with Newseria.
Meanwhile, Randstad's study found that in the first quarter of 2015, the number of Poles who are anxious that they might lose their position increased yet again.
