2014 Wasting Time at Work Survey

Workers Are Wasting More Time Than Ever in 2014

Wasted Time: Online vs. Real Life

Time-wasters exist both virtually and in your face.

Although 26% said the biggest overall time-wasting activity was browsing the Internet during work, the old standbys were right behind. Having too many meetings/conference calls and dealing with annoying coworkers tied for second place with 24% each. Returning emails garnered 12%, dealing with an annoying boss had 7%, social media was at 4%, and personal phone calls saw 2% of respondents.
