Small Business is our Business

A recent survey of 250 senior managers in the U.S. and Canada by Robert Half, an international finance and accounting firm, found checking email during meetings got a VERY mixed response from these executives.

*38%  It’s NEVER OK. Email devices should be turned off at the meeting

*35%   It’s OK to read and respond to messages during the meeting BUT only if the message is urgent

*20%   It’s OK to check messages as long as attendees excuse themselves and step outside of the meeting to respond

*6%  It’s perfectly acceptable to read and respond to email, especially at a time when what is being said doesn’t pertain to them

1%    Don’t know
