So is this a backlash against 24-7 connectivity? Automobile giant Volkswagen is all set to deactivate emails on most of its German staff after office hours according to this report. The idea is to rid employees of the 24-7 work culture where connected devices make you work even not at work. But will just deactivating emails on one platform really help?
“Mobile communication devices offer a great amount of freedom, but also embody the risk of no longer being able to switch off,” the company said.
Will we be able to switch off?
