Ah, work-life balance. A mere myth for many of us, with laptops, tablets and smartphones meaning we are ‘on’ all the time.
A survey from the US by ThinkingPhones found that more than half (53pc) of those surveyed have responded to a work-related query while in the bathroom, while nearly a fifth (18pc) have responded to work emails while on a (presumably fairly bad) date.
Even while on holidays, it seems that many of us struggle to switch off, with a whopping 82pc of those surveyed responding to work emails while on vacation.
The survey does seem to reveal something of a generational/seniority gap, though. Sixteen per cent of entry-level employees say it is not appropriate to work outside of business hours, but just 5pc of executive-level employees say the same.
Work-life balance, eh? Who needs it?!
