TWO IN THREE TRAVELLERS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA ADMIT TO WORKING ON VACATION, ACCORDING TO A TRIPADVISOR SURVEY

The results of its working-on-vacation survey of 16,765 employed respondents across 14 countries1, including 618 in Southeast Asia. Sixty-seven per cent of respondents surveyed in Southeast Asia report having worked on vacation in the past year, compared to the global average of 46 per cent.

Why People Work on Vacation


Fifty-five per cent of respondents in Southeast Asia say they do not mind doing a little work during their vacation, while 36 per cent prefer to be totally disconnected, and eight per cent enjoy being connected to work while on vacation.

     Across all countries surveyed, the top reason respondents cited for working on vacation is that there may be urgent situations that need attention – 75 per cent of Southeast Asian respondents report feeling this way, higher than the global average of 58 per cent.

     Southeast Asian respondents are the most likely to report feeling guilty if they do not work on vacation (19%), and also the most likely to say that their managers expect it (15%).

Email Trends and Online Connectivity

      Ninety per cent of Southeast Asian respondents typically check their work emails while on vacation.

      Of those who check work emails on vacation, 44 per cent say it is an everyday habit and do not consider it to be "work". 

Forty-one per cent check their work email once a day, while another 41 per cent admit to checking several times a day.

    
Forty-six per cent of respondents say the rise in internet connectivity and access to mobile devices has created an expectation from employers that employees should always be available to work, thus feeling the need to check in while out of the office.

 

Annual Leave Allotted Versus What is Considered Fair

      On average, respondents in Southeast Asia are allotted twenty days of annual leave, four days less than the global average of 24 days.


Only 53 per cent of Southeast Asian respondents are satisfied with the number of days of annual leave allotted, compared with the global average of 68 per cent.


 
Southeast Asian respondents would like an additional three days of annual leave, considering 23 days to be fair and reasonable.


Give Me a Break

      Fifty-nine per cent of Southeast Asian respondents plan on taking their full annual leave this year, but whether they eventually do so still depend on work commitments. Fifty-six per cent of all respondents surveyed feel they were not able to take all their time-off in past years as there was too much to do at work.

Sixty-nine per cent of respondents in Southeast Asia say their vacations leave them feeling refreshed and recharged, and 29 per cent say they are better able to handle work stress after taking a vacation.

 

"The TripAdvisor survey shows that travellers in Southeast Asia receive less annual leave than other Western countries, and when they do take time-off it is often more like a 'workation' than a vacation," said Jean Ow-Yeong, TripAdvisor spokesperson. "In today's highly connected world, Southeast Asian travellers feel the need to stay plugged in even when on vacation."

 

The survey was conducted with 16,765 travellers globally, with respondents from Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand), Australia,Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, the U.S and the U.K. from 7 to 13 August 2014.
