‘Tis the season for time off, right?

Many organizations either shut down their offices or give employees the last week of December off (Christmas to New Year’s Day). Because professionals often use this time to travel, visit family, or relax at home, we were curious to see how productivity is actually impacted.

Wishing you a happy holiday season and a productive New Year from all of us at Egnyte
