This is the theme for the 2007 Health, Work & Wellness Conference – October 17 – 20, 2007.
Here is an excerpt from the conference promo documents:
“Which one of us is not feeling the crunch of greater work-life conflict? In order to deal with the competing demands of the 24/7 workplace along with childcare and eldercare issues for many, we’ve begun to rely on timesaving technological devices. At first it was a godsend, a time-saver, a way to speed up and streamline how we worked and what we acheived in a busy business day. It gave us instant access to phone calls and emails, wireless connections for our laptops and PDA’s, anywhere, any time of the day or night, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year in and year out…it became a nightmare. Conference 2007 will tackle this issue. We will explore the research, trends and solutions surrounding the 24/7 work-life conflict and the blessing and curse of technology.”
Health, Work & Wellness is planning for conference presentations in the streams of – Getting Smart, Working Smart, Growing Smart, Leading Smart and Personal Smarts. (The main focus of the streams ranging from research to leadership to policy and practice to personal strategies.) Further information can be found in the Call for Proposals document.
