iPass Mobile Workforce Report
Outlaw food because terrorists use food!
This may be the “logic” of political rulers but it ought not to be that of thinking individuals. An example of this can be found in the “iPass Mobile Workforce Report” infographic. It claims that 25% of mobile employees sleep fewer than six hours a night. However, it is well known that there are more mobiles in use on this planet than there are people on Earth. Therefore, every employee is a mobile employee and, it follows, that 25% of every employee gets fewer than six hours of sleep each night. This does, in fact, comport roughly the same with a WebMD article that says that 20% of Americans get fewer than six hours of sleep each night.
The overall theme of this infographic may not necessarily be wrong, strange or peculiar, but it does appear to contradict another infographic that we have seen here. In that infographic, mobile use was praised and said that it raised the productivity of workers. In this one, it says that the added productivity impinges on the employees’ time and hinders them in pursuing exercise and interacting with family and friends.
This may be a way of saying “six of one, half a dozen of the other”. It may simply be a different perspective of the same thing. Yet, the infographic says that 69% of mobile employees (or simply “employees” as explained above) are highly proficient. This survey is most likely from the employees’ own personal observation. In short, they do enjoy being proficient, but do not like the work associated with such proficiency.
Perhaps the real truth is that you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
Likes: The “Contacting IT” graph. We feel the same way as do most in the survey.
