Parents are filling their back-to-school shopping list with technology according to a recent survey of 800 parents of school age children by Asurion, the connected life services company. Parents stated they plan to purchase calculators (50%), tablets (32%), laptops (29%) and mobile phones (23%) before the start of school this fall.
This summer Asurion estimates that 18 million phones will be lost, stolen or damaged, and during a season when travel and vacation plans take consumers far from home, this can be especially hazardous. With 83 percent of people surveyed in a recent Asurion study saying their phones are an important part of their travel experience, being without the valuable device could put vacation plans at risk.
Nashville-based Asurion, a connected life services company, has been named a Top Workplace by The Tennessean. The award is presented to employers in Middle Tennessee based on feedback provided by employees to measure job satisfaction and organizational health. Employee responses are then bench-marked across all corporate participants to identify truly great work environments.
