The technology that promises
to save us time and optimise our efficiency and output is actually sucking it away - and it’s having a serious effect on employee health and productivity.
Employee wellbeing is a major focus for Australia's leading organisations. To boost morale and foster a positive, healthy culture, employees are being offered great benefits such as health screenings, subsidised gym memberships and flexible work conditions.
But in our digitally-dependant workplaces, what about the impact of technology?
The endless pings and dings of emails, alerts and notifications are sabotaging even the most engaged employees.
And it’s not just in the workplace. Technology has seeped into every aspect of our lives, blurring the lines between work and personal time. We check our phones in bed, accept work calls at the dinner table and send emails at all hours of the day and night.
Digital habits like these are unhealthy and unsustainable and it’s taking a massive toll on both our physical and psychological health and wellbeing and compromising our productivity.
