In this exclusive HCI podcast for the 2014 Talent Pulse: The Mindful Employee research report, we talked to Gloria Mark professor of informatics at the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at University of California, Irvine.
In this 10 minute interview, we asked Dr. Mark:
- What are the effects of multi-tasking on employee performance?
- What are some tactics that employers and employees can use to alleviate the effects of these distractions?
- Is it important for individuals to disconnect from technology?
- What can individuals do to help them disconnect?
