Technology has connected the world, and completely changed the way we work. Along with providing a number of useful tools to make things easier, the dawn of the email age has provided an avenue for people to be “connected” at all times. Having access to email on smartphones, while handy, is often accompanied by the temptation to be available 24/7, […]
