With a third of people admitting they send more emails to their boss than their partner or closest friend, a Hilton Hotels & Resorts study reveals Britons give more time to their jobs than their relationships. The flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide finds more than a third of couples believe they don't have a good work-life balance. Recognising the impact of Vacationitis on relationships, Hilton announces rates starting from just £65 so guests can save up to 20% off selected minibreaks worldwide, along with a romance package with special amenities to spark a 'Romance Revolution'.
To help us get a better understanding of the growing Vacationitis epidemic in the United Kingdom, we commissioned a study among 2,000 workers in the U.K. The results speak for themselves: Britons enjoy just eight days of their average 24 days annual leave because the rest of the time is taken up with ‘domestic admin’.
The 2003 Leisure Time Advocacy Survey commissioned by Hilton focused on Americans’ typical workday and non-workday activities, amount of leisure time, hobbies, vacation activities and attitudes toward vacations.
According to a 1991 Time Values Survey commissioned by Hilton, finding time for both work and personal life became so critical that a majority of working Americans said they would be willing to take less pay to get more time off.
