The boundaries between being “at work” and “not at work” have become increasingly blurred due to the rise of mobile technology, alternative work arrangements and the 24/7 economy. The changing nature of work means that employers potentially have more access to workers, while workers may feel pressure to continue to work or be available after hours. With the ability to always be connected, workers’ health may be at risk due to an imbalance between work and the need for both physical and mental rest.

Share this infographic on how to support employees to disconnect from work, including the development of a policy and tips on respecting the need to disconnect. See the tip sheet on the importance of disconnecting from work during the COVID-19 pandemic for additional information.
