BlackBerry may be banned by UK employers due to time-wasting
We all know what it’s like to own a BlackBerry. The very reason why we have CrackBerry. The addictive nature of devices can sometimes get us in to trouble. For that very reason some British bosses are calling to ban BlackBerry devices (as well as other smartphones) as they fear that they are becoming more of a burden than a gain.
BlackBerry devices were given to employees as it allowed them to access emails on the go without being tied to the desk. Bosses think that this has now led to time-wasting and is no longer beneficial for the business. Peter Mooney, of Employment Law Advisory Services, said that employers have started to downgrade on company mobile phones. “What started as a trickle is certainly building up to a stream as more and more employers start looking at what they really need from their employers.”
