U.S. workers will not leave work very far behind – if at all – during the week of December 25, according to staffing firm Robert Half’s holiday survey.

Eighteen percent of workers plan to work the entire week.

Of the 67 percent of workers who will take at least part of Christmas week off, 64 percent will check in with the office while they’re out.

One-third of employees plan to take the entire week off.

Sixty-one percent of this group say it’s because their organization closes for the week; 79 percent of them note their firm pays employees during the closure. For people who plan to work, 81 percent expect to be at least somewhat productive.

This is a sad testament to our burnout work culture.
