We all love the connectivity that comes with our smart devices. We can connect with customers across the globe, book a home in another country, and share news and photos in instants. But the connection between us and our phones is leading to an often unwelcome connection between us and our workplaces.

The problem is more pervasive with men and people who are under 44, but it affects us all. We’re not only blurring that boundary on weekends, but also on sick days and on vacations, too.
