This presentation will begin by outlining the key research that has been conducted in the area of email and smartphone addiction in the workplace. Following this, Emma will present results from some of her research (funded by the ESRC and RBT) into strategies for dealing with email at work, and how strategies appear to move from being purposeful – satisfying specified goals – to habitual (automatic) and eventually pathological (or addictive). Delegates will be asked to consider their own use of email – especially within the smartphone era. The session will close with Alison and Emma outlining some of the key strategies that can be adopted by organisations and individuals to improve the management of email at work. Learning Outcomes: 1. To become familiar with key research in the areas of email and smartphone addiction 2. To learn about applied research in the area – conducted at UK organisations, and what this means for our understanding of strategic behaviour 3. To reflect on personal use of email/smartphones – strategies and bad habits 4. To consider whether any of the suggested management strategies could be useful in improving the delegates’ own email and smartphone usage.
