Show Topic:

Can you go ten minutes without checking your email?

Do you find yourself picking up your phone and suddenly realizing you’re not sure what you were planning to search for or what app you were going to visit? Does the same thing happen when you’re on a tight deadline?

When you have to be productive, but the envelope icon keeps flashing on your screen or your phone keeps pinging?

On this episode of HR Power Hour, join co-host Tawny Alvarez as she talks to Jeff Wozer, writer, comedian, speaker, about the effect screen time is having on productivity and proposed ways that employees can take back the time they are losing to digital distractions.

About The Guest:

Having toured nationally for 20 – plus years on the comedy club and corporate circuit, performing with the likes of Martin Short, Jim Gaffigan, and John Oliver, Jeff Wozer now pulls back the curtain on digital distraction, helping people, at both work and home, make better decisions with their screen-use time.

Through keynotes and breakout sessions his engaging blend of insight and humor educates individuals on digital-balance practices so that they, not their devices, are controlling their attention and, ultimately, their days.

Jeff’s insights, borne from his own screen-struggle story, has educated audiences at conferences and business meetings across the continent.

Some of his clients include the Alaska Recreation and Park Association, Premera Health, BASF, the New York State Correction and Youth Services Association, Novelis Aluminum, the Colorado Mortgage Lenders Association, and the Contra Costa County Employer Advisory Council, to name a few.
