Work-family balance

With modern cellphones and email, most professionals are always on call these days. For many of us that means that we never seem to stop working, even during weekends and holidays. A new study has found that having to monitor and answer work-related emails outside of regular working hours tends to have detrimental effects on people’s quality of life. It makes it harder for them to unwind and to keep their work issues separate from personal matters. The result is increased emotional exhaustion and a disruption in their work-family balance.
