Work spills into bathroom time for over half of Americans

Sponsored link
More than half of working Americans - 53 percent - have been interrupted by a work-related phone call or email while in the bathroom, according to a survey commissioned by Nokia.

The survey revealed that office-related intrusions invaded other areas of Americans’ lives as well. Twenty-four percent have allowed a call or email to interrupt them while in the throes of passion, and 23 percent while on a date. That may be because most working Americans - 59 percent - never turn off their mobile device. Nevertheless, 75 percent of working Americans say technology plays a primary role in helping them balance their work and home life.

The survey also showed that work seeps into leisure time more often than not. Sixty-two percent of working Americans have had their personal lives interrupted by work 10 or fewer times each week. Conversely, a similar number - 65 percent - have had their work lives interrupted by a personal matter.

Work-life balance is the theme of the “Life - In Balance” events taking place this week at Nokia Flagship Stores in New York (October 21) and Chicago (October 23).

Each event will feature the latest in Nokia’s devices and services geared towards balancing the work-life equation, in addition to sage advice from Julie Morgenstern, a bestselling author and time management and organization expert. Morgenstern, who wrote Never Check E-mail in the Morning and other books, will offer tips on how to use technology and other resources to better manage work and personal activities.

Morgenstern and Nokia have also developed a complete list of “Get Your (Work) Life in Balance” tips for easing your daily grind. For the complete checklist, please see:
