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.

Accept that you have to put in place remote work systems, even if more than half of your employees ultimately revert to office-based work.
