Why Rising Mobile Use Among Women is a Concern

What this could mean for employers

Women are reporting a 70 percent increase in mobile-device usage compared to pre-pandemic and conducting at least half of their work on such devices, according to a new survey.

The research, conducted by the data and insights division of The Mom Project called WerkLabs, reports an even more dramatic increase among working moms, who use their mobile device for work 80 percent more during the pandemic (non-moms reported a 30 percent increase). The mobile device increase comes with added stress, as 72 percent of all women surveyed feel pressured to stay online and accessible throughout the day.

This type of stress could drive more women from the workplace. In an earlier Werklabs’ survey, women reported being almost twice as likely as their male counterparts to leave their employer within a year due to their work experience during the pandemic.
