As most Americans head into a long holiday weekend, how many will truly disconnect from work for three days? Unsurprisingly, the answer is not many.

A recent survey from virtual meeting company PGi found that 82 percent of the 500 people surveyed check in with work daily when they are on vacation. Still, at least they get out of the office.
