Front, a startup that makes a shared inbox app, has challenged its employees to reduce their screen time to less than 14 hours a week. If the employee can make it a whole month, they earn $200.




Mathilde Collin, Front's CEO, abandoned work-related apps on her phone years ago, and said it made her happier and healthier.




The goal of the challenge, Collin said, is for employees to cut out distracting notifications and focus on what really matters.

Front, whose app lets teams handle messages from email, texts, Slack, and social media in a shared inbox, has started paying employees $200 a month to put down their phones more often.
To get the cash, the employee must reduce their screen time to less than 14 hours a week, or an average of two hours a day, and send a screenshot of their usage to human resources. Adults ages 18 to 34 in the United States spend two hours and 34 minutes a day on apps and the internet on their smartphones, according to Nielsen data.
Mathilde Collin, cofounder and chief executive of Front, says the goal is to help employees resist the itch to check their notifications and become more present in their professional and personal lives.
