Helping organisations to find their phone/life balance
In the workplace, the challenges of a 24/7 culture are all too apparent. The negative effects include continual distraction, eroded work-life boundaries, increases in stress, decreased productivity and loss of true human connection.
Businesses with their eye on the future are starting to support their staff to pause, reflect and examine how they can ensure the technology they are so reliant on really enhances their lives rather than overwhelms them.

WHY PHONE/LIFE BALANCE IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR ORGANISATION
Researchers have found that just having your phone within sight reduces cognitive capacity by 10 IQ points (equivalent to a sleepless night). Given that we are interrupted up to 200 times a day by our phones, it is becoming harder for employees to achieve ‘flow’ or to deploy ‘active listening’, critical for both job satisfaction and productivity.
2. EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
We know that ‘deep work’ and ‘finding flow’ lead to a stronger connection between the employee and their workplace. Deep work is necessary for mastering new skills, synthesizing complex information and producing better results in less time. But the art of concentration is one that is dwindling and needs to be relearned within many workplaces.
3. EMPLOYEE WELLBEING - their relationships, physical and mental health.
1 in 4 people have felt ignored by a friend in favour of a device, whilst 78% of adults check their phones within an hour of going to bed - proven now to reduce sleep quality. There is also growing evidence linking the overuse of phones to feelings of loneliness and depression. Finding phone/life balance helps everyone to consciously connect, so that they can also enjoy periods of real downtime, focus on relationships and get a good night's sleep.
