The emotional hazards of your workspace

There is a new term in the research circles in response to a new mental health hazard in the workplace called telepressure.

The emotional hazards of your workspace

Telepressure is the need to obsessively check and return work emails on personal time.

This can be in response to a feeling of needing to be on call at all times for work.

Being on call 24 hours a day, including weekends leads to both physical and emotional burnout.

The best way to combat this is to set a strict policy of being unplugged from work during non-working hours.
