Despite the importance of supervisor-subordinate interactions and the ubiquitous nature of smartphones, research is yet to investigate how smartphones impact important employee outcomes.

Three studies were conducted to test the research hypotheses, using both a continuous measure and a...

Preoccupation with our cellphones has irrevocably changed how we interact with others. Despite many advantages of smartphones, they may undermine both our in-person relationships and our well-being.

We demonstrate the harmful effects of phubbing, revealing that phubbed individuals experience a sense of s...
