Is our use of work communication tech burning us out faster than ever?
In this week's People ExperiencePodcast I spoke with the fantastic Ryan Hopkins, Future of Wellbeing Lead at Deloitte, who's serious about the digital boundaries we need to be setting for ourselves.

'We've had 10 years of transformation overnight with the pandemic, but the cultural norms haven't kept pace', Ryan told us.

So how can we start to strategically create healthy boundaries for ourselves, whilst still remaining connected and productive as teams?

'The line is disintegrating slowly. You're hearing your slack go off at 8 or 9pm and it's giving you heart palpitations. Unless we define those digital boundaries, the people who make the tech, and your colleagues, are going to define them for you because that makes their lives easier.'
