We hear a lot these days about how we’re working harder than ever and struggling with work/life balance. So we were surprised by a new survey finding that most vacation goers actually plan to leave work at the office this summer.

The survey - conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of jobs website Glassdoor - found that around 65 percent of workers who are taking a vacation this summer expect to check out of work completely.

Only 13 percent of the vacationing employees said they are expected to work while on vacation, and another 18 percent said they’d only have to work in an emergency.

The figures excluded people who said they were self-employed. The survey of around 2,000 people was conducted online in June.
