But there’s also a downside to all this connectivity. Because people can stay connected to work even when they’re not technically working, many of us feel that we should. Many employers expect workers to be on call at all hours of the day, even while on vacation or taking time off for other reasons. This, in turn, can disrupt work-life balance, increase workload expectations, make it harder to unwind, and add new pressures to the daily grind. Mobile technology has also led to an increase in interruptions at work, which can cause stress, frustration, time pressure, and excess energy expenditure.
