EPISODE 14: OPEN ALL HOURS – THE FATE OF THE 21st CENTURY BUSINESS PERSON

Ever since the advent of mobile phones, it has become increasingly difficult for anyone in business, but particularly managers and directors, to switch off from work at the end of the working day. Have we become 24/7 slaves to our job, with premature burnout the price we'll end up paying? In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast we look at the implications – positive and negative – of constantly being in touch with the business.

Neil Lloyd, Director at Techtimeout discusses the impact of technology addiction on productivity, mental health and relationships, and how to create healthier relationships with tech. Matt and Neil Baldock, Directors at Charles David Casson talk about the challenges and rewards of always being on call whilst building up a successful business, and Tania Diggory, Founder of Calmer explains how educating and empowering professionals to reduce stress and embed calm into daily life can prevent burnout.
