The festive period is upon us! Most of us look upon this time of the year as a nice opportunity to take a well earned break from work, and spend some quality time with the family. However, this isn’t the case for everyone, as our recent survey suggests 54% of business people will be working during the Christmas break this year and 38% will be travelling into the office
This seems to be particularly true amongst small businesses as 58% are more likely to work over the break than the larger firms (48% respectively)
