You'd almost have to have lived on another planet over the last weeks not to have heard of the latest phenomenon, an addictive new game played on the players mobile phone called Pokemon GO.
Many employers and employees are already reporting that productivity has taken a serious dive.
The game challenges players, known as 'trainers' to hunt down and battle each other's monsters in a seemingly endless quest to 'catch em all'.
US aircraft manufacturing giant Boeing has already banned play during working hours, having discovered that the app had been installed on more than 100 work phones since its release, and that one person was almost injured whilst playing it at work.
HR shouldn't just be worried about productivity; organisations could be in the verge of losing their best talent to the game. Tom Currie from New Zealand resigned from his job to search for rare monsters. Tom said, 'I was desperate for a break, and Pokemon gave me the chance to live that dream'.
