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.
