NOTES: Tips For Remote Workers to Disconnect From Their Jobs to Improve Work-Life Balance
Many remote workers are still struggling with balancing careers with personal lives especially the pressure to respond to work emails or calls after hours.
With the stop-start-stop-start of the last two years, employees didn’t know exactly how to navigate this new normal, and what to do. People were just diving right into work. It wasn’t very clear what is to be done at every point in time, or a week after.
One thing that is very important in managing disconnect from work and home-life is communication of expectations.
Initiate The Difficult Conversation
If your boss hasn’t said, ‘hey, you have to be on and working at 9:00 p.m. and reply to my emails.’ Then you the employee needs to ask the question, ‘am I allowed to shut my device at normal closing time? Can I respond to any after hours email the next day?’ Sadly, as nice and clear as this sounds, our devices are always on unfortunately.
