If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying the heatwave outside of the office bear in mind that however productive you are the day before your 2-week holiday there is always something that a colleague will need to keep an eye on for you. Be that your team, a project or a deadline.
So, before you switch on your out of office, it is definitely worth saying a thank you in advance for all the extra work your colleagues will need to pick up.
