The issue of Leaveism

The issue of Leaveism
  • Leaveism is the behavior that makes employees feel compelled to use their holidays or days off to complete work-related tasks, away from the office.
  • It is a problem that is increasing annually because of the pressure to fulfill the expectations of ever-changing deadlines and demands of the employers.
  • As the numbers of the unemployed increase, the attitude towards work changed. With fewer people covering the same volume of work, workloads have become tedious and exhausting.
