A study by the America’s International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans found that employees who take their annual leaves are 40% more productive and less irritable, depressed, forgetful and easily fatigued compared to employees who don’t take annual leaves.
Taking a break makes employees more productive. Ask anyone how they feel after a vacation, and they will say that the holiday makes them feel more focused, refreshed, ready and raring to start work compared to the latter part of each year when breaks are less or fewer.
Studies have shown that employees tend to work better after leave – they become less prone to accidents, they become more productive, and less likely to be stressed out. Employees who take their full annual leave entitlement are also less likely to file sick leave.
After leave an employee feels recharged his motivation for what got him to working with the employer in the first place.
Coffee breaks, tea breaks and Christmas breaks are all necessary for your employees to remain productive!
Without breaks, everything is affected from creativity to the ability to meet deadlines. Well rested employees are more focused, refreshed, ready and raring to start work!
