53% Canadians Will Work up to Three Hours Per Day During Their Summer Vacation Time: Study

Do vacations from work really exist in this era of hyper-connectedness?

A remarkable 53% of Canadian professionals plan to work one to three hours per day during their vacation time this summer, according to the results of a recent survey by Angus Reid commissioned by Regus Canada.

However, there is a positive flipside to this. Many workers (in theory) should be able to take more time off overall, considering that most professionals can conduct a majority of their business via laptops, tablets, and smartphones with remote internet connections. 38% of Canadians would rather work from their cottage than anywhere else, while 18% would enjoy working while camping the most, and 16%, the beach.

“A virtual office allows professionals to make a first-class impression without having to physically be at a location,” said Wes Lenci, VP of Regus Canada. “Business owners can work anywhere with confidence, as a receptionist will answer and forward phone calls and receive then deliver parcels to a summer getaway, so there’s no need to stress about missed opportunities.”
