In short, yes. In the UK, the trend for workations is rising, with 46% of employees having taken a workation in the last year. The workation market in Japan is estimated to be worth around 100 billion Yen.
A survey of 7,000 employees conducted by Consultancy.eu, concluded that 80% of people like to stay longer on their vacations by adding a couple of weeks of work time onto their booked holiday time.
While, according to Passport Photo Online, 67% of American workers took a workation in order to recharge, and 86% claimed that doing so helped them to feel more productive.
If you're tired of working from just one location and need a break or a change of scene, but perhaps don't have as much holiday entitlement, or the money to afford weeks away, a workation is the best of both worlds — ensuring that a worker has a longer break, but can still meet their duties and deadlines.
