Happy new year everybody!

After a few days of rest, the NETWAYS team is now ready for the new year. But let’s take a look at what we were up to in the last month of 2019!

Healthy living? In December?

Markus kicked off the month with his contribution to the blog-series “Just fit- Just awesome”. Luckily, he didn’t mention sugar or calories! He focused on a very important subject concerning life-work-balance; Reading work-related e-mails in your free time. And he also treated the disruptive effect of constant e-mail alerting, and how this can be avoided with a small change of settings. Read useful tipps in E-Mails und Bereitschaft nach der Arbeitszeit – “Just fit – Just awesome”.
