Being tethered to technology 24 hours a day is leading to perpetual work, and we like it?
According to a recent Gallop survey those of us who text and email work related activities beyond our work day are more stressed but also some how perceive that we are “doing better.”
“U.S. workers who email for work and who spend more hours working remotely outside of normal working hours are more likely to experience a substantial amount of stress on any given day than workers who do not exhibit these behaviors. Nearly half of workers who “frequently” email for work outside of normal working hours report experiencing stress “a lot of the day yesterday,” compared with the 36% experiencing stress who never email for work.”
