While you're on vacation, others are stressing

While you're out of the office, enjoying your vacation, your co-workers are stressing out. A survey found that about a quarter of all working professionals feel burned out when their colleagues are vacationing.  Could be all that extra work or maybe a little vacay envy. The vast majority feel overworked. Your vacation isn't the only thing stressing workers out. A third of those say they are burned out directly before taking time off.  It's probably all that work that has to be done before leaving the office.  And then there's the fact that nearly half of those who get paid time off are not taking it. That's got to lead to a lot of built-up stress.  For the office's sake, everyone needs to take time off so everyone can feel the stress evenly.
