Growing Trend Of “Workations”


Many of you will have tomorrow off, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be checking in with work.

New research finds that 54 percent of Americans check work emails and text messages while on vacation.

That’s up from 41 percent just last year.

Jennifer Scriven, who is on vacation in Sioux Falls, says it’s not just work that’s difficult to unplug from when you’re on vacation.

“What’s difficult is unplugging from my friends and family who wonder, ‘Where are you at? What are you doing?’ Sometimes when you go to places like Alaska, you don’t have service all of the time, so that’s the hardest part for me,” Scriven said.

KELOLAND’s Casey Wonnenberg will take a look at the growing trend of “workations” tonight on Your Money Matters on KELOLAND News at 10 p.m.
