jenrgw New Study Suggests Banning Cell Phones While Driving May Help Business Productivity

Some employers have been hesitant to develop or enforce policies that prevent employees from using a cell phone while driving. In their defense, these employers typically argue that business productivity will suffer and that they, or clients, need to reach employees while they are driving.

The results of a new study suggest that these employers may be wrong. In fact, according to the National Safety Council, productivity may even increase if employees are encouraged to focus solely on driving while they are behind the wheel. The study found that of the companies that issued total bans (including hands free devices) on cell phones while driving twenty percent saw a decrease in employee car accidents and seventy percent saw an increase in productivity.
