Abstract

In our always-connected society, being ‘online’ can mean being constantly available to assume any of our many daily roles, such as parent, colleague, etc. that reflect our work or personal identity. In this paper we frame the concept of online/offline using work-home boundary theory, discussing the implications of being constantly connected with our work identity for wellbeing and health. We present existing legislation, policies and guidelines that can help regulate when a worker is expected to be available (i.e. assume his/her work identity) and suggest a set of research questions that the HCI community could usefully address to help inform the creation of company policies and guidelines that reflect workers’ personal and professional boundary preferences.
