Controlling Technology in a Changing Workplace

It has become commonplace for employers to create employee handbooks with guidelines for workers to understand their work environments and jobs. One of the most important parts of these handbooks is how they address new technology-i.e. cell phone and internet use policy. In today's technology-dependent workplace, employers face the challenge of clearly defining this. These tools create a fine line between distraction and benefit, usually falling somewhere between nuisance and asset. For example, every text message is an opportunity to start a conversation unrelated to work, and yet a text message is likely the fastest way to communicate with a co-worker. Today's employer must address these issues and create a cell phone and Internet policy to benefit the workplace as a whole and protect your business.
