One in five workers returned to work looking to hire new staff and 19 per cent decided to make plans for expansion. One third of SME entrepreneurs used their annual leave to come up with new ideas.
Despite this, 37 per cent admit to checking their work emails on holiday, and 10 per cent even continued working.
Shaun Pulfrey, founder of Tangle Teezer and ambassador for the Business is GREAT Britain campaign, said: You can never switch off creativity so Im always making notes when Im away, whether it’s new ideas or ways I think the business can move forward. I dont worry about the day to day running of the office I trust my staff completely to do that.
