How does technology affect work-life balance?
Technology can cultivate or harm your workforce’s work-life balance.
At work, digital tools help your workforce to get work done, including automating routine tasks, providing communications channels, and improving collaboration. Such resources are especially helpful for teams working in virtual or hybrid arrangements. Additionally, technology can drive work-life balance by helping your workers maintain focus and organize their day. With more structure, your employees can plan their days and leave work at a manageable time.
Digital tools can also make work-life balance more elusive than ever because the ability to work from anywhere can make your employees feel they always need to be available. Unaddressed, the invasion of technology in their personal lives can lead to worker burnout, low performance, and attrition.
Addressing how technology affects your employees’ work-life balance starts with a conversation between your leadership and employees.
