How can employers meet the needs of employees in the always-on economy?

Innovations in technology and communications over the years have changed working lives beyond recognition. Many employees no longer need to be in a specific place to do their jobs, and can connect with colleagues and clients in any location, at any time. This potential for 24/7 availability has brought about plenty of positives, not only when it comes to business results, but also working lives. However, having an 'always-on' culture also creates stresses and challenges for both employees and employers.
