Does Your Company Need a Smartphone Policy?

Filed under: General HR Buzz7:42 am

Are your employees twittering during meetings? Texting during conference calls? Checking Facebook on their iPhones during training?

As more employees carry and use iPhones and BlackBerrys, some employers are fretting about an increase in impolite smartphone usage. A few days ago, The New York Times had a fine article by Alex Williams called “Mind Your BlackBerry or Mind Your Manners.” In it, Alex cites questionable smartphone behavior in different workplace settings. Some companies have taken to policies banning BlackBerrys during work meetings. But more companies are facing up to the reality of the omnipresent smartphone: “Despite resistance, the etiquette debate seems to be tilting in the favor of smartphone use, many executives said.”
