Q: I manage a department with about 10 employees and I’m planning to take a one-week vacation.  In the past whenever I’ve taken time off, someone from the office ends up calling me for one reason or another. These are not emergencies and could have waited my return.  Do you have some advice on how to prevent staff from calling me? I wish I could just unplug in peace.
