This past weekend, in the span of 20 minutes, two separate people nearly walked into me because they were looking at their phones instead of where they were walking. Annoying to be sure, but also a movement that is undeniable: people are on their phones constantly. A recent PEW study announced 77% of Americans own and use a smartphone to check emails, bank information, dates, date, order groceries, and much more.
For better or for worse there isn’t much we don’t do on our phones. Nearly everything is accessible from our pockets, and your employees expect the same accessibility for modern HR functions.
