Bennett & Belfort, P.C. partner, David E. Belfort, recently published an article in the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Lawyer’s Journal entitled “The Value of Disconnecting.”
The piece, which ran in the monthly’s March/April Section Review, focuses on the importance of uninterrupted vacations and down time in the age of boundless smart-phone technology and a seemingly endless stream of professional emails. Mr. Belfort discusses findings by Human Resource professionals indicating that time away from work is an essential component in the promotion of worker productivity – and he suggests the same principles apply to attorneys.
Mr. Belfort goes on to share some of his workplace strategies to allow for proper, relaxing breaks while away from the office in suggesting that we all ‘work’ to make time away from the office an authentic “break.”
