Remember to unplug
We love helping people get their work done. However, some things are more important than work. Your mental health is valuable and needs to be taken care of. That is why it is critical to be able to disconnect. Just because you can take your work with you everywhere does not mean that you should.
Mute your notifications if you want to disconnect for time off, after-work hours, and weekends. You should be in charge of your notification settings. That is why we make it easy to customize your settings.Rock has more great features coming to the mobile app so you can keep getting the most out of your work.
