Studies like this one always perk my curiosity. A new study lead by Paul Glavin, a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Toronto, spotted some interesting differences between how men and women feel about work following them home through mobile devices. They saw women responding emotionally feeling 40% more distress than men when interrupted by mobile devices at home. This was even the case when they had the same amount of “work pressure.”
The study was based on a survey of 1042 US workers, mostly white with children and in their 40s, describing their work and home dynamic. CNN has an interesting analysis of the study but I thought it would be interesting to ask all our readers. How does your BlackBerry effect your work/home balance? What role does it play?
