Employee motivation: Smartphones could boost performance says T-Mobile

Date: 03/03/2011

Smartphones can help to boost employee motivation as they allow for more flexible working practices, according to T-Mobile.

The mobile phone company has suggested that small businesses could benefit from smartphones and other mobile technologies as they boost staff performance wherever they are.

“Mobile technology is becoming increasingly important in all walks of life. Workers expect the same technology at work as in their personal lives,” said Martin Lyne, director of SME marketing at T-Mobile.

“Small businesses need to be flexible and available at all times, regardless of whether in the office or on the road. Smartphones especially help small business workers to remain responsive to queries through calls, texts and emails at any time and any place,” he added.

And he also mentioned that access to Google Maps, addresses and contracts could also be easier with smartphones, when usually they would require staff to be at the office.

Another way to boost performances and productivity in the workplace is by playing music, according to Francis McGinty from the International Stress Management Association UK, who said it improves the wellbeing of staff.
