How to Manage Cellphones in the Workplace


The advent of cellphones has exacerbated the problem. Now, the irritating ring of cellphones is considered a major workplace annoyance by co-workers.

In addition, the camera feature on these phones creates a privacy concern, and using cellphones while driving on business has become a huge liability for employers.

Recommendations for employers and employees:

  1. Cell phones in the workplace – for personal calls – should be limited to emergency calls only.

  2. Cell phones should be turned off during meetings or when with clients.

  3. Cell phones should never be used while driving on company business. If it’s necessary to make a call, then pull off to a safe area, park, and make the call.
