It looks like this whole work/life balance thing is starting to catch on — even among CFOs.
More than half (51%) of finance chiefs said they don’t plan to check in at all with the office while they’re on vacation this year, according a recent survey by Robert Half management Resources.
That’s double the number of CFOs who said they’d go completely off the grid back in 2010.
Another 11% said they’d check in at work once or twice per day, which is down from 15% in 2010.
As for the CFOs who just can’t leave work at the office, the study found that 8% said they’d check in several times per day (vs. the 18% who said so back in 2010).
Even though more CFOs say they won’t be checking in at work, most would probably want to be contacted in the event of a crisis. But that means it’s essential for financial chiefs to let staffers know exactly what type of event would justify contacting them on vacation.
