I know we live in an age where people need access to their phones - but where I work - they have bereted us with policy after policy to get people to work. As I don't look at mine at work - I'll avoid answering ANY phone at all cost - every time I hav...

My employer seems to have gone the opposite direction - embracing the technology wave of personal devices. There is a "bring your own device" practice is place where they have developed or purchased secure apps for people to use to receive business em...

The cell phone policies where I work are being relaxed more and more. As a matter of fact, we are encouraged to use them to enhance customer experience. Also, the convenience of being able to text both hourly and salary co-workers is more expedient t...

At the airlines, we are not supposed to use our own phone while onboard the aircraft working. However the company has issued us a company " tablet" which is a Samsung phone, it does not work as a phone but as a tablet for us to receive and send company...

Studies have shown that workers are more productive if they are able to take a few minutes every hour to check their phones or chat with a coworker. Your company's policy may actually be having the opposite affect that they intended. TG

I don't touch my phone at work, if I can help it, at all. Being a personal trainer, people are paying me *very* well to give them my undivided attention. This doesn't bother me at all, and I carry a flip phone, because it does what I need it to do, a...

They really don't care... part of the problem is that the few that it is impacting their productivity the leaders don't talk to - so instead everyone gets treated like 6 year-olds

I don't touch mine either - like I mentioned - I hate phones and only carry it as I have kids that might need to reach me...

... We are allowed to use phones at work. How else would we keep up with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Youtube, Netflix, Atlas Quest, and Trekkie Gal's Survivor Pool Updates? Silly...

Because of the confidentiality agreement we have with our clients, cell phones must be off and out of sight at all times in our rooms (think classroom-like setting) That said, we tend to be relaxed about people having phones on vibrate, particularly...

... I bet someone who really likes their phone did that study. *nodding* =) It's not a big problem for me. My employer is pretty lax about how or when I use my phone, and I often leave it off for days at a time. I find stuff like that distracting any...

Our industry has multiple issues with cell phones, etc. The biggest one is carrying contamination into the Controlled Production Environments. Phones (can) touch the face and mouth and, therefore, become fomites for carrying germs. Some of those ger...

... I love obscure, seldom used words......but I love seriously multi-syllabic words even more. Our engineering staff know that if they can work any of these into their investigations or reports, I give bonus points!!

That is excellent. Here's mine for the week (not English, obvs): mamihlapinatapai defined as that moment when you hear a clunk, but don't know if it's a box or a tree root resonating in a hollow spot -- holy anticipatory not-knowing. or not. Today...

... Not quite the same thing but I was a science major in college and a couple of us played a game where in EVERY paper we wrote, we inserted the made up but biochem sounding word "postlyptic". In three years, I got it circled on a paper one time wit...

My job performance is based on my UPH (units per hour) numbers. If the person in the aisle ahead of me doesn't have the same work ethic I do and is on the phone, get off the production floor and play with your phone all you want. Don't screw up my ch...

I spend all my time as a teacher policing the cell phones and telling students to get off of them and put them away. ;) I myself am not super attached to my phone, I turn it off or to vibrate and forget to turn it back, most of the time.

... SWMBO is retired now, but where she taught the rules worked this way: If caught with a cell phone or if your cell phone made any noise and interrupted class, the teacher confiscated it. And the student didn't get it back. It was turned over to a...
