Thursday 14 April 2016 | 10:44 CET | News
Telenor Sweden said eight out of ten managers say that mobile telephones and other connect devices make meeting ineffective, and seven out of ten say their companies have no policy regarding mobile phone use. It said a study commissioned from Sifo found the majority have never discussed how constantly being on-message affects their workers' ability to carry out their jobs. It said its Workfulness programme, developed in conjunction with cognitive neuroscientist Katarina Gospic, enables businesses to look at this issue.
