Home Forums Emails; work/life balance? Reply To: Emails; work/life balance?


We have a ban on sending emails between 7pm and 7am and none at weekends. However, I then spend a lot of time trying to catch up on emails I have to send in the morning. The system does allow a break at weekends, which is good and stops you looking at work emails. Yes, there is a lot of unimportant traffic, but as a SENDCo there are also a lot of external important emails. The great thing about email is you can respond in your own time, especially when you aren’t always by a phone for people to talk to you directly. It’s all about balance.
