Essex Business Podcast: Open all hours – the fate of the 21st century business person

by Kim Aaronricks

The latest episode of the Essex Business Podcast has now been released, featuring practical tips and specialist advice from sought-after experts and professional advisers across the county, to help companies thrive post-lockdown.

Ever since the advent of mobile phones, it has become increasingly difficult for anyone in business, but particularly managers and directors, to switch off from work at the end of the working day. Have we become 24/7 slaves to our job, with premature burnout the price we'll end up paying? In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast we look at the implications – positive and negative – of constantly being in touch with the business.

Neil Lloyd, Director at  Techtimeout  discusses the impact of technology addiction on productivity, mental health and relationships, and how to create healthier relationships with tech. Matt and Neil Baldock, Directors at  Charles David Casson  talk about the challenges and rewards of always being on call whilst building up a successful business, and Tania Diggory, Founder of  Calmer  explains how educating and empowering professionals to reduce stress and embed calm into daily life can prevent burnout.
