Most people have cellphones, and it is almost impossible to avoid them. Which is why for small business owners this can be troubling. When an employee is chatting on a cellphone during work, they are spending your money. Here are things you can do to curb employees’ cellphone use at work
- Set limits: Be clear, fair, and flexible.
- State rules: For example, personal calls only during breaks, avoid unprofessional language, and set cell phones to vibrate or silent.
- Write it down: Ensure that your employees understand the policy’s terms and consequences so that there are no misunderstandings.
- Follow up: When an employee breaks the rules, the employee must be held accountable no matter what.
