Technology is becoming increasingly prevalent in our day-to-day lives both at home and at work. As organizations shift operations to support more remote working, employees are finding that once where collaboration was face-to-face, technology has taken its place and their work-life is now predominantly digital. But how is this impacting our digital wellness?

According to Quartz, “digital wellness is defined as tech’s ideal state in which it works in harmony with users’ physical and mental health.” It’s a key ingredient for a positive employee experience. However, contrary to aspiration, Quartz research highlights that employees see digital wellness as something far from reality.

The good news is that Citrix believes that with the right leadership and technology, these consequences can be avoided or overcome. While technology plays a helpful and critical role in our daily work life, it can also distract us and become counterproductive.

As our lives become more technology integrated, employers have a responsibility to ensure the products and systems they deploy to support the digital wellbeing of employees. Join us to discover how Citrix and Flexxible IT are taking on this new responsibility in these ever-changing times.
