Bosses and employees might think vacations might create potential productivity gaps, but it actually can be helpful.

"And, if you think about burnout and busy season, it's really important that you step away from the office and you use the allotted time given to do things that can benefit you--rest and relaxation, health and wellness," said Robert Half Houston's regional president Brandi Clark.

She said employers need to have a plan so every employee can have their time away.

"So they can go back and be in a good position to do their job well. It's important to take that time away and just take care of yourself," said Clark.

She said when you go on vacation...remember to disconnect electronically from the office.
