Supporting remote workers’ right to disconnect during non-working time

Growing workplace digitalisation and use of telework during and after the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the risk of “permanent connectivity”, resulting in increased work pressure and stress.

The SwitchOff project supports managers and trainers acquire competences on how to support workers to achieve their right to disconnect from work and restore their emotional, cognitive and physical resources at the end of their working day. It also supports companies to adjust their policies and practices to this concern by providing resources on how it can be accomplished and how to use digital technologies and other practices to support workers to disconnect from work.
