A recent survey for Reed.co.uk found that over half of workers aren’t using up their annual leave each year. So if you’re just back from holiday, and can’t wait for the next one, make sure that you’re not one of them.

Taken all your annual leave?

We do like to be beside the seaside

As working parents often find, there’s often an inner conflict between spending time with children in the school holidays and maintaining a professional stance in the workplace.

If you’re looking for work, for example, you don’t want a prospective employer to be put off by the thought that you’ll be requesting umpteen weeks off in August ­–and the rest of the school holidays for that matter. As flexible recruitment specialists, we know that employers don’t really view working parents like this.

Post-holiday lull? Not so!

In fact, Reed’s survey says that 90% of employees feel more productive at work following a holiday. And let’s face it, you probably more than deserve it if you’re one of the many workers who put in over 70.5 hours in overtime each year.

We also know that working mums and dads are viewed as highly organised, efficient employees – and it’s why so many of our clients return to us for their flexible hires time and again.

Our flexible recruitment agency is here to support working parents and businesses alike; to fulfil their goals whilst bringing together the best working solutions for their needs. So if you’re just back at work and are thinking about your next opportunity or flexible hire, why not get in touch?

In the meantime, happy holiday planning!
