CM121: “Get Off Your Cell Phone!”

It rarely takes more than a few minutes for a Boomer manager to start complaining about how much time Millennials spend on their cell phones: “Will you get off your cell phone? No wonder we can’t get anything done around here!” But is this a real problem or a perceived problem? While Millennials feel lost without their phones, is it a Millennial problem or a more general cultural problem? Do cell phones actually impact workplace productivity?

One of the most significant changes in the workplace in the past 15 years has been the impact of the Internet and social media as sources of distraction in the workplace. Join Kelly and Robby as they take a long, hard look at the use of cell phones in the workplace and try to separate fact from fiction.

The problem is getting Robby off his cell phone long enough to even have a show this week.
