While being online 24/7 is not an expectation, because we are easily reachable, managers can send quick messages to drive action on their end. As employees, we can do several different things:
1) set the expectation - are you supposed to be online on specific times of the day because you certainly aren't supposed to be working 24 hours
2) is the action required of you a priority or an immediate need? If you receive messages in the weekend, think about whether anybody else, apart from the person messaging you, is going to receive the information and read through it. Sometimes we set such a high standard for ourselves when it's not necessary or even a priority
3) practice mindfulness. It's important to be present for whatever it is you're doing. If you're answering emails, then answer emails. If you're having family time, then try not to think about work. It takes a lot of practice to be mindful and it pays off once you've gotten used to it.
4) turn off your notifications. You don't necessarily have to disconnect from the world if you want to disconnect from work. You simply have to ignore specific notifications. If you can't, then you have the option to uninstall any apps that may lead to you being overworked.
5) be respectful of your time and the time of the person you're spending it with.

Therefore it would be very obvious for a Recruitment firm to suggest it is a bad outcome.
