Bosses are finding it difficult to tear themselves away from the office while on holiday.
 
According to a survey by stationery company Euroffice.co.uk, nearly half (48 per cent) of respondents intend to contact the office this summer while away.

Of those, 39 per cent said they plan to call in a couple of times throughout their break, 25 per cent said they will contact the office once a day and 23 per claimed they will be checking in several times a day.
  
Simon Drakeford, group CEO of Euroffice, says: ‘[Owner-managers] are finding it increasingly difficult to leave their work behind and relax while taking annual leave. Ultimately, the extra stress will begin to take its toll – and this can negatively affect employees as well as the business.’

According to research by the Chartered Management Institute, a quarter of all UK managers have no plans for a summer break this year.
