Indeed. It’s not healthy nor sustainable. To somewhat help, I’ve been turning notifications off from my phone for emails on the weekend because even on the weekends, these crazy people don’t know how to stop working.

I’m afraid this will be the new norm going forward. Even post-covid

Wait until you are working to read them... Honestly we are doing what we can. Some of us have babies and toddlers and grown kids or sick parents to manage through and don’t have the ability to send you an email at a time that is convenient to you.

Ok that’s fine. But in most instances, some of these people can’t find a fine line between work and personal life and are literally addicted to working and it’s not healthy

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
