Switch off after work?

Study on recovery in times of constant availability starts in April - test subjects are still being sought

The fact that employees can now also work from home and on the move offers advantages and disadvantages, says Dr. Kathrin Reinke, research associate at the Department of Business Psychology. On the one hand, it allows more flexibility and a better work-life balance. On the other hand, your health can suffer if you are constantly available and literally cannot switch off. To help people draw healthy boundaries between work and private life, Kathrin Reinke is planning to develop an online training course.

She is currently looking for participants for a four-week study to test the effectiveness of this online training. The prerequisite is a job of at least 20 hours per week and daily use of a computer or cell phone at work. The time required for the study is around one hour per week.
