While a workation isn’t quite as relaxing as a traditional vacation, the change of scenery it offers can help you combat stress, improve your focus and enhance your overall well-being. Plus, you’ll still have the opportunity to unwind and explore your new surroundings during breaks or after hours.
In a survey of more than 1,000 American employees, 86% of respondents agree or strongly agree that a workation boosts their productivity, while 81% say they have become more creative at work after taking a workation. What’s more, 83% agree or strongly agree that a workation helps them cope with burnout, and nearly 69% say they’re less likely to quit their job after going on a workation. Separately, a Booking.com survey of 20,000 travellers from 28 different countries showed that 37% of global travellers have considered booking a destination trip for work.
Clearly, a workation can provide a much-needed mental reset, enabling you to eventually return to your regular nine-to-five with renewed vigour and purpose. As a bonus, you’ll get to immerse yourself in the wonders of a new destination, without using up your precious annual leave days!
