More companies telling workers to turn off email
When most people are off the clock, they completely disconnect from work. But a new survey by the Society for Human Resource Management finds more companies are telling their employees not to engage in company emails during the off hours.
The survey found that 1 in 4 companies are enforcing the rule. It found that while worker productivity has gone up because of laptop and email use at home, many companies are realizing workers are also getting burnt out.
Although a labor department report shows just one in 10 people bring their work home. Labor advocacy groups say that figure only accounts for those who are clocking in hours for extra pay.
Is it a good idea for an employer to impose a no-email rule during time away from the office? Let us know on Facebook!
