MANY PEOPLE WOULD RATHER HAVE A ROOT CANAL THAN WORK WHILE ON VACATION

A new survey finds Americans are very serious about their vacations. The study was commissioned by Ricoh Americas Corp. and was conducted online by Harris Interactive. The survey covered over two-thousand adults, and found that half of those who said they have taken a vacation said they'd rather get a root canal than work while on vacation. Sixty-seven-percent of those who have taken a vacation said their families resented it if they worked while away, and three-quarters said their employer did not make it easy to access work-related documents remotely. However, 67-percent of those who took a vacation said that checking work e-mail eased their return to work. Vice president of strategic marketing at Ricoh said, "Workers absolutely must have a chance to recharge themselves, their families and their career. Employers ignore this need at their peril." (UPI)
