Tablets make us work

Read today in a Dutch newspaper:

Because of smartphones and tablets, managers work more frequently in their spare (private) time. According to Metro, 25% of the managers indicate that they spend more time working in their private hours.

Of the managers with a smartphone, 21% said to work more often after-hours, as was found in a research amongst more than 300 managers. When a tablet is also part of the repertoire this percentage goes up to 25%. Women tend to use the smartphone to work from home, while the tablet is a male thing.

In addition, the research showed that 1 out of 5 managers check their e-mail 5 minutes after waking up. almost 66% of the managers in the research had an iPad.

So the next time your boss is bullying you that you shouldn’t do a status update on Facebook in the office, send this post.
