Let a Virtual Receptionist Provide Your Holiday Cover.

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

A recent survey by recruitment company Experteer showed that the majority of business people go on their holidays equipped with laptop and mobile phone.

When asked about the extent they engage in job-related activities, differences appeared amongst Europeans: Whilst almost 60% of the British, the Spanish, French, Swiss French, and Italians check their work e-mail at least every other day, more Germans do so “only in urgent cases” or “never.” The Dutch prefer clearer separation between work and play: more than one-third never check e-mail whilst on holidays and one-fifth accesses it only when urgent.

Two-thirds of Europe’s leading professionals do not miss work whilst on holidays, with that sentiment strongest amongst the French and the Spanish. And nearly three-quarters of senior UK executives surveyed said they used the first few days of their holidays purely to unwind from the demands of their job, with nearly two thirds admitting that they are not particularly interested in checking in with the office.

More than half of Germans complete their holidays without the stress of finishing important job tasks. This is not the case for other Europeans: almost three-quarters of French senior-level professionals must do so and almost half the British.

Another survey of 1,000 London professionals by Origin Storage showed that a staggering 41% of them planned to take a mobile phone on holiday so that they could keep in touch with the office.

If you’re planning a holiday from your business, and want to leave the telephone behind, a Virtual Receptionist from CSnotepad could provide a flexible and cost effective alternative to handling your inbound telephone calls yourself.
