Are you able to go home and leave work behind – really? If so, you are lucky, and you are one of an ever-decreasing number of employees out there!
More and more people are experiencing a fuzzy line between work and home that is causing a number of different issues.
That is happening because more and more of us, especially younger workers, are checking in with work off hours. They are responding to emails – sometimes in minutes, most of the time by the end of the day.
That urgency affects men more than women and those that are under age 34 more than other workers. A good percentage of workers also are checking in with work on vacations and even on sick time.
That mobile tech is disruptive and intrusive and employees are having a harder time establishing boundaries between work and life.
To help recognize this and combat it, this graphic points out some interesting trends to pay attention to.
