It's no surprise that today's 'always connected' culture is putting pressure on people to be constantly available for work.
As a result, more of us are checking our work emails and accessing work documents from home in the evenings and on weekends.
A German study has determined that this is leading to higher rates of insomnia and increasing the likelihood of headaches, fatigue, anxiety and stomach problems.
Perhaps it's time for employers to be more proactive when it comes to limiting employee availability outside of regular work hours.
This could benefit both employer and employee, after all.
