Businesses are investing in Bluetooth headsets to boost employee productivity and reduce workplace injuries such as the neck and back strains often associated with long-term, ongoing desk-phone use. Other organizations -- especially those with mobile workers, such as truck drivers or off-site sales representatives -- are using Bluetooth headsets to promote safe driving and meet the hands-free laws many states have enacted.
