YouGov Survey Results

*A survey commissioned by British Airways Holidays with YouGov Plc. in October 2022, found that more than a third of working Brits (36%) who did not take their full annual leave said it was because they ‘just didn’t get around to it’. 42% confessed that they have felt stressed about work whilst on holiday, and 46% responded that they have had to work on their leave. 48% have checked work emails whilst away and more than a third (39%) have gone one step further and responded. It also revealed that nearly 79% of those asked agreed that taking a break is good for their mental health. A follow up survey with YouGov Plc was undertaken to establish how much leave Brits had left to take with fieldwork between 25 and 30 August 2023 with a total sample size of 4529 adults of which 2647 are currently working. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+).
