Dangers of working outside office hours: The most successful employees can become addicted to the internet and burn out, say researchers
Hard workers who log on after they finish work may be the most successful but they are most likely to develop compulsive internet use and risk their mental health, academics say.
Increasing numbers of employees are working outside office hours, boosting their careers but putting their well-being at risk, a new study has shown.
Researchers at two UK business schools said companies are ignoring the problems of staff developing compulsive behaviour – waking at night to check emails and feeling anxious when separated from their computer – because those affected are often the best employees.
