But, a recent Indeed survey found that half of full-time employed adults don’t use up annual vacation and personal time available to them. Further, 59% do work-related business while on vacation.

Not Sorry

 
 
The title of this post is not something you’d typically see from an HR blog. It comes from a recent lunch I had with a friend. She was talking about working with a new co-worker who said, “I’m sorry . . .” before every response she gave in regards to her work. I asked her how she was trying to change this behavior, and she calmly responded, “I’m beating the sorry out of her !!” I almost spit out my water with laughter. What a
