I often wonder if banning phones in the workplace is a good move. I understand the reasons why people would start mobilizing a mutiny if this was to actually be floated.

However…

This is not going to get any better. Productivity in this country will continue to suffer. Younger generations who have grown up with a device at all times will find detachment difficult.

My younger working days played out just fine without a phone in my pocket on the job-site. All emergencies were filtered through the proper channels and I received all information that was needed. The world did not stop on it’s axis.

This is a problem.
