Do You Waste Time At Work? Here Are Some Of The Biggest Distractions
If any of us ever said that we are always 100% productive at work every single day would be making an absolute false statement. Would you disagree? Think about it. A survey conducted by our favorite job search site, CareerBuilder, one in eight people waste HALF their workday. Can you believe that? Don’t tell the boss. At least 62% of waste at least an hour a day. Here’s what’s distracting you…..and me!
1.) 34% of people said talking to co-workers about non-work-related stuff was the biggest distraction. We don’t do that, do we?
2.) 22% said the Internet. Internet? What is this internet that you speak of?
3.) 18% said loud co-workers distracted them most. We all have one or more of those!
4.) 17% blamed personal calls or email.
5.) 15% said office drama. Wouldn’t be an office without it.
6.) 11% said daydreaming. Ah, the great escape!
7.) 7% said gossip. He said, she said.
8.) 2% said watching television in the break room. Yeah, if we had a TV in the breakroom.
9.) Here’s the best one…4% said . . . not understanding HOW to do their work. Wow! Really?
So how are you distracted at work?
