Notifications have become a part of our daily lives. Whether it’s the ping of a new email, a message from a colleague on Teams, or a meeting reminder on your calendar, these little nudges constantly battle for our attention.

Here’s our three step take on tackling the notifications dilemma:

1. Set clear boundaries: Make it understood that messages should be replied to within working hours. Practice what you preach by not sending messages outside of your own working hours (schedule send where possible).

2. Reduce tool overload: Evaluate the collaboration tools you use. Streamline where possible.

3. Empower your employees: Teach them to use do not disturb, and how to mute non-urgent notifications.

While technology has revolutionised the

way we work, it shouldn’t come at the cost of our wellbeing.
