I got a great laugh out of a report that Neverfail published about 24×7 availability pressure causing Email addiction and worse. I always wanted to know if I was the only one using my BlackBerry in the bathroom… Thank you Neverfail for a humorous and enlightening read!
In a nutshell:
The executive report, “Mobile Messaging Marketing Trends,” finds that worry over being available during non-work hours has led employees to e-mail addiction, causing them to take unnecessary risks with their health, their relationships, and even the welfare of others.
And my favorite stats:
- 79% checked email in the bathroom
- 77% while driving
- 11% while engaged in intimate behavior
- 41% while their commercial plane was in the air
- 94% during work nights or weekends
- 96% while on vacation
