Volkswagen to Improve Work Life Balance for its employees

German Automobile maker, Volkswagen AG has come out with a unique way to fight against the Company Syndrome. As per the complaints of the employees of this company, the syndrome forces them to be available 24 hours a day as the workers never stop getting e-mails on their smartphone, Blackberry.

Volkswagen AG has thus come to a conclusion that the employees will not receive any e-mail on their smartphone after 06:30pm until 07:30 am in the next morning.

This change will affect 1,100 of VW’s nonmanagement employees. Although it’s a small number, it is a significant leap forward for the German work culture. VW, the biggest German auto producer, is definitely a major trendsetter for the industry. Seeing such action, other German companies could likely adopt similar measures
