Ironically I am the CEO for a social media marketing company...
Social media and smart phones in the work place. I'm all for it but it's down to the individual to have discipline and respect in the work place to monitor their own usage. It can take one person to shift it all in one persons favour.
Social media is starting to go the reverse having focused so much of their time on smart phones the rise of desktop apps such as Whatsapp web are fast becoming the norm. It actually makes it quite difficult to bring these topics up simply because it's not as obvious as it used to be when devoting ones time to social media.
It is now not something you can address easily without accusing staff of something they might not have necessarily done. If you don't necessarily have any concrete information to back it up with. Such as the problem with the various mediums social media now presents itself with.
With the average person checking their phone up to 150 times a day and then add on the time it takes for that employee to regain their focus before the next message comes in is a real problem for small businesses.
I am keen to know good ways to address these common scenarios in the modern work place? From junior to senior level. Whether you have company policy or none whatsoever. How to keep everyone happy but also have a good work ethic.
