We seem to spend all our waking hours connected in some way, and a report in the UK actually highlighted that 17% of us are anxious when we are offline. In addition, a number of companies across the country have hired consultants to help their staff deal with the stress levels that come with having a full Inbox of emails. Will our Inboxes just continue to fill and will ’email stress’ be the next backache for the workplace?
