Indian employees feel guilty about taking leaves: study

According to a new study by Randstad India, about 35 to 40 per cent of employees surveyed in India said that they feel anxious to ask for leaves from their bosses. When a similar survey was done in America, about 39 per cent of workers agreed to feeling stressed and guilty about taking well-deserved offs. The reason could be any one: Fear of missing out (FOMO), job insecurity and the pressure to always be productive are a few.

Experts say that a lack of breaks and vacations can lead to mental health problems. And, the only way we can build up to courage to ask for those well-deserved offs is to work on our self-esteem. Know that you are doing better than average and that you deserve a few days away from your office desk.

Indians also feel that they are the most vacation-deprived people in the world and that they hardly take any “vacation time”. According to the 2018 vacation deprivation report, released by the online travel portal Expedia, 75 per cent of Indians feel vacation-deprived, which is the highest in the world, followed by South Korea and Hong Kong. The annual report spans across 19 countries and highlights that vacation deprivation is on the rise.
