"It seems to suggest we're a nation of workaholics. Australia has a reputation for putting a priority on work-life balance, and we may be losing that, with the uncontrolled introduction of technology into the workplace. We want flexible hours but too many of us are using the technology to stay plugged in to work 24/7. We need to know when to switch it all off... There's also a bit of believing we're all indispensable, and we like to feel we're an important part of the group.''
