Policy

Brief

As communication technology has advanced, America’s workers are increasingly expected to be on call at all hours of the day. This constant need for availability has made it so that we are continuously distracted even when we are spending time with those closest to us.  

After we leave work, we should be able to dedicate our time and attention to family, friends, hobbies, and community engagement. We should implement a not-on-call phone-free time in the evenings under normal circumstances.

 

If we’re always on, we burn out. We think less creatively. We contribute less and we are not present for our children and families. Employers should recognize this and give us all the chance to truly rest and recharge away from the office.
