IMHO this is just a "middle-managment" idiocy. Why don't they just go
for a coffee break? Or indeed just stop looking at their email if they
are not required to? Is it in writing as a policy at least so people
feel OK about going offline? Or is it a one-upmanship thing where
everyone is too afraid to stop looking in case they look bad in
comparison with the compulsive unpaid overtime crowd?
Worthy of Dilbert anyway - ie transform an obvious people management
problem into an IT problem (because most managers are incapable of
I have the same thing with telephony, ie "what technology can make
people who don't pick up the phone, pick up the phone, but not make
people feel like we're a call centre". We've pitched ACD but no-one's
willing to stump up the <100K licence for the org. But they don't
understand that when you have someone that doesn't want to use the
phone, no amount of technology (short of electric shocks/live grenades
etc) will make them do it!
