Smartphones are becoming more versatile and are also taking on many of the features and characteristics our computers have. Not to mention the evolutions that we see year after year. As such, they are being rapidly incorporated into our professional lives – surpassing the single use of a contact device. However, amid this integration and innovation, we're seeing a increase in smartphone interest in our working lives. And we must ask the question: how are we separating the two and how much smartphones affect our work-life balance?
Our survey showed that 80 per cent of people use their phone in relation to work – constantly or irregularly – quite clearly showing how important smartphones have become our working lives. But there are obvious advantages to using our smartphones in this way, to course; ever-evolving apps enable us to display and edit work documents from a remote location, communicate with our professional contacts without restrictions, and even provide us with a modifiable digital calendar. Yet what is it exactly that keeps working people sticking to their smartphones?
It has clearly been a common benefit in professional smartphone use with more than 80 per cent of respondents pointing to the importance of networking apps. Our apps allow us to connect with others regardless of the situation – so if you're in bed, on the train, or even even at the gym, you can make good use of your time to advance your professional communications.
