A new article by Bloomberg demonstrates that a good survey can stay relevant, no matter how much time has passed since it was fielded. Wakefield Research worked with Motorola last spring to release a PR survey surrounding smartphone users’ work/life balance. Results showed that nearly half of Americans (43%) have been woken up at night by a work call, text or email.
The statistic is significant since Brazil just passed a new law declaring afterhours emails and calls eligible for overtime. This is a story that’s getting a lot of traction in the U.S., as cable commentators are hashing out whether there’s an appetite for a similar law here. Considering how many Americans are groggily responding to work emails and calls, overtime could skyrocket if this legislation were adopted.
