Maybe it’s that the screen of a BlackBerry is just too small to read—or maybe the eyesight of your aging workforce is beginning to dim. A new WellPoint survey finds that one in 10 office workers admits to misreading information on a phone or wireless device or sending e-mails to the wrong person.

Tip: As screens get smaller and employees spend more time looking at them, encourage employees to have their eyes checked regularly.
