    Many employees of our company concentrate more on their mobiles than their work

    I am the manager of a private firm. From the past few weeks I have been noticing that many of the employees of our company concentrate more on their mobiles than their work. This is not good for our company and also for their future. What can be done in such a situation?

    Hi,
    This is quite complex situation for you, but you just need to do 1 thing:
    Lets list name of all employee who use more mobile and then start hide operation and judge them that if they are using phone for valid reason(means some urgent calls).......
    Or they are just time pass, if you found them that they are just use their phone most of the time, then just call them in your cabin personally and give them warning.
    If still they use then print 1 notice in which mention some amount as an plenty for those who use mobile phone most of the times.

    When the candidates enter the company for work then he /she should not bother about the mobile.It kills more time in the office.so,For more benefits to your company you have to tell the workers to not use the mobile phones in the company.And also tell them serious action will be taken if they use the mobile in the office.
    For office use keep a land line,
    all the best
    thank you

    Hi,

    Since you are the manager of your team, it's your responsibility to check your employees if they walking on a wrong path. In fact, most of the private firms are very strict about the usage of mobile phones on the work floor. So you have every right to question your employees if they are giving more importance to mobile phones during working hours.

    Now, there can be many ways to check your employees. But you have to adopt the way in which your convey your message to them in a very polished manner.

    You can either call for a common meeting and discuss this matter in open with all the employees collectively or send a mail to the entire team notifying this important message.

    You can even take help of the HR team and request them to send a common mail to the entire team and attaching a fine of Rs.100 to those individuals who would be caught talking or playing with their handsets on the floor. Ask your employees to take only important calls during working hours and they must walk out of the floor while taking these important calls.

    I would suggest you to implement these rules confidently in your firm as these rules are actually followed in most of the organisations today.

    Thanks.

    hello sir-
    You are a responsible person of company and lots of duties are attached with you so you should make some ways to prevent such type activities.
    First of all make a statement and deliver among the employees.
    after this you should print some papers like notice and affix in company's notice board.
    You should mention heavy fine to those persons who do such activities again.
    I hope daring to fine they will control over this
    thankyou

    Well nowadays mobile has become the center of attraction for everybody whether its a bussiness man, small employee, a taxi driver or a rikshaw puller everybody has a mobile so they are making the complete use of that device in their day to day life.
    Nowadays Android mobiles are in the market and they are the cheapest one and also have all the functions in it.
    Nowadays mobiles play all kinds of stuffs like vedios, pdf files, mp3 and each and everything related to the office work as well.
    So if you think that your employees are getting the wrong direction due to that thenyou need to ban the mobiles at workplace because this will be the only option to stop such practices as if your employees are not given the good direction then they might go to the wrong place.You cannot ban the mobiles directly as because for that you need to give the warning to them that use of mobiles at the work place is not good at all and it will make the things worse in a working environment.
    After that if any of the employee is using the phone in the work place then boss has a right to take the mobile of that employee with him till the time he is not getting off from the shift.
    This will make the rule strict.
    Then many f the employee will be scared to do that thing because they will not want to loose theor mobile at the time of work.
    So make the rules as per the environment and they will not do it again.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is by nature for most of the employees to spend time on gosping & few take interest in works.This is mainly due to poor administration & discipline.If the administration is tight,such complaints seldom arise.So you should try to tighten the administration in your firm so that it would be good for employees & firm also.Because,if the employees don't work with interest,the firm/company/organisation can not survive.

    In order to tighten the administration,you should issue a urgent notice for limited use of mobile during duty hrs.You can fix time for 10 minutes daily at the time of lunch,failing which action will be taken against the concerned employee.Get seen the notice by all the concerned employees.See the result.If any one found violating the notice,remind the concerned employee that you were found violating the instruction on the date---,so Rs.50/per day will be deducted from your salary of the current month.

    You may find a drastic change among the behaviour of the employees.They may become very sincere for duty.

    So try & see the result.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello friend

    The modern world is getting moved and deviated by the mobiles which are getting advanced day by day.Above these the android applications are so much moving that they can attract anyone.hence,most of your employees may not be paying the required attention on their work and spend maximum time on mobile.You need to take some sincere steps but mind you they should not be very strict.You can ban the use of mobiles during certain hours of the day and may use the salary deduction technique for some time.It might prove to be helpful and thus you would be able to draw back the attention of your workers back to their jobs.

    All the best
    Thank you.

    yes your right young generation where we see are more concentrating on face book updates and recently the we chat app that attracts people in chatting whole day with their mobile internet is cause of concern you as a manger are responsible to clean up the mess you see around there is no sense that they do come office and do time pass with mobiles the fact is they are paid not for free they should maintain office culture and also some decency and discipline you cannot ignore the work you do when you don't have seriousness at work the company will not do any improvements in financial year and also the developing the profits.. you should take necessary actions on the behavior of the employee and pass a resolution that all the phones should be switched off during the office hours if any necessary tell them to you them or else its a big no for fighting and doing time waste with them.. now its really foolish to take away mobile from them they are not kids to take them as you do as a principle in a college you should call for a meeting and also tell the cause of the meeting make all of them aware of the meeting its could be a short 15 minutes of time.. there you should mention the reason why your unhappy at the employees is excessive use of mobiles why they don't have seriousness then it would provoke you especially to fire employee with indiscipline and using mobile for doing time pass chatting as well..

    you should convey the information that they would be a rule when ever an employee gets calls from their parents or wife they can attend them with no hesitation and when they get them do have a room so that they can have the freedom to talk and join their desk as they finish their call .. during lunch hours give their freedom tell them this is nothing to do if they use them in their free hours.. its OK use your mobiles if you finish your work and do what ever you do that too in a particular place allotted which should be done by you in particular..without disturbing others .. do work you should maintain work culture and discipline no compromise issues are allowed

    Mobile is something that is necessary for human life and currently there are so many people who can not walk without mobile because they have to get in touch with society every time and this is the better source to connect with everyone they have so they use mobile phones while working hours too but this mobile has became a huge problem in the work of people and mainly in business and corporate sector because employees are keeping use of mobile while work so this disturb a lot during working hours and companies does not like this thing at all because if 20 employees working in a office and 10 are being busy on mobile phones after every 1 hour then company is getting a big loss behind this because the work that should be completed within 10 days is being completed in 12 days so companies are 2 days behind than that of others so think about it first because business is first

    Secondly implement a new rule in the office premises and take approval of the higher authorities then mention the office that no body is allowed to use mobile phone while working in the office because this disturb a lot during to work and not good for the advantage of the company and if anyone found using mobile then he will loose the salary of one day but also give instructions that time to use mobile phones and contact to personals will be - 1 PM to 1:10 PM then lunch and if lunch time is extra then you should give 10 minutes extra to talk on mobile phone so all will be satisfied and seriously you should be strict over this rule and keep observing all the employees while they work again and again so you will get no complain about it

    All the best
