RE: Use of personal cell phones during work
Stewarth, if you are a SHRM member you can get a very good Cellular Phones In The Workplace Policy by going to http:/www.shrm.org/hrtools/policies_published/
Or, I will be happy to fax a copy for you to review. I am in the process of coming up with a policy now, and will take into account things like safety issues for our drivers, production issues for our service personnel and customer service issues for our clerical/admin personnel.
I agree it is becoming an increasing problem. (Aside: I was conducting an all staff training the other week and two personal cell phones went off in less than thirty minutes. Would you believe they had the nerve to answer and LEAVE THE TRAINING to finish the personal conversations.)
This is unbelievable to me!
