Weekend email means neverending work

According to a new poll from Right Management, 33 percent of workers report they frequently answer email from the boss on weekends. Another 30 percent said they occasionally got work emails on the weekend. It’s another example of technology blurring the work/home line, said David Hughes, Market Vice President for Right Management."Everybody once thought technology would reduce the drudgery and make the workplace more efficient. Sure, technology has delivered great benefits to employees, but it also crosses the boundary between the workplace and the worker's own private space. It seems one can no longer get away at all from work or responsibility."
