The Mobile Phone Challenge
Are they helping or hindering us?
Is the flood of attention-demanding messages & notifications turning our phones into the biggest distractors in the workplace?
On average we spend about 12 minutes per day on missed calls, voicemail and organising callbacks
We check and respond to an average of 8 incoming messages and notifications on apps every single day
180 minutes is spent every day by the average worker on checking their email on their mobile
These interruptions contribute to the 2,617 daily touches, taps and swipes. Since most aren't important to the present moment, our focus is shattered
95% OF PEOPLE are interrupted 5x hour
by their smart phone at work
We invite you TO JOIN US!
Thanks for your interest in taking part in this important project!
Mobile phones have become an indispensable part of our work lives. The challenge is increasingly how can we make sure they remain a help as opposed to a hindrance to doing our jobs!.
We are working on solutions such as helloSkotty to help prevent these interruptions from becoming distractions, to allow people to focus more on the moment, manage their time more effectively and be more productive.
We’re partnering with companies such as KLM, Diageo and Akzo Nobel on a large-scale research project to gain insights on how to help people manage these distractions. We’d love your company/team to be part of this project.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN
OBJECTIVES & OUTCOMES
1. Understand how your team currently uses their phone
2. What causes distraction / disruption -> impacting productivity and focus
3. Gain insight into how incoming calls to mobiles are currently managed
4. Help you help your team better manage their mobile phone
5. Decrease distraction and increase productivity
6. Define the most beneficial solution to managing calls when you’re busy
Imagine the saving! If you have 100 employees that could save 10 minutes a day. That represents an annual productivity saving of €500.000. Your team will also benefit from being able to focus on the key task at hand whilst their calls are being managed, plus your customers, clients and/or colleagues get an instant response and a time that they know will be called back.
HOW WILL IT WORK?
EXPECTATIONS & BENEFITS
We'll run the project with your direction, taking care of all the key tasks:
Create the survey: tailor as necessary
Provide suggested email to send to respondents
Run survey and provide results report
Follow up with interested testers on a virtual assistant call manager service
Onboard testers and support during the trial
Collate feedback for future iterations and innovations to better serve your team
The investment is in time, it will take your employee about 5 minutes to participate. And that is it! In return we would like to use the anonymous survey data for our research goals.
In return for your participation, we offer you a tailored survey and a report with the results plus some advice. On top of that we offer your employees the benefits of helloSkotty our virtual personal assistant app for a period of 2 months for free.
