Finding the right balance between your work and home lives can be a tricky prospect, and that’s become even more true the hybrid workplace has become more popular. Want proof? More than ¾ of employees in one survey said they check work email during non-work hours, and 13 percent said they check work email from bed, before they even begin their day!
