Stressed Out About Work…On Vacation?

Going on vacation sometime stresses me out.  I don’t know why, but I’m often thinking about my job and if I tied all the loose ends before I left.  Or I worry about what I’m going to come back to…you know how when you come back from vacation, you’ve got 500 emails in your inbox?  It almost makes you NOT want to go on vacation.  Well, let’s hope this catches on.

From, Daimler AG is the German company behind Mercedes, and they’ve added the option of having all your incoming emails automatically DELETED while you’re on vacation.

The coolest part is they’re actually encouraging their 100,000 employees to do it.  A spokesman explained that in their view, workers are more valuable if they take a REAL vacation, and completely stop thinking about their job.

So if you send someone an email while they’re out, you get a reply that says the message will automatically be deleted.  It also includes their phone number, in case you REALLY need to contact them . . . but says not to call unless it’s an emergency.

And the company DOESN’T monitor who uses the service and who doesn’t, because they don’t want employees to feel like they’ll be judged for it either way.

Isn’t that cool?

Enjoyyour vacation, my friend
