Wasting Time at Work 2012

Our Survey Shows How Much Time Employees Waste at Work & How They Do It

Does Education = Wasteful?

Although it's never a waste of time to get a good education, our survey shows the more educated you are the more time you waste at work.

Only 59 percent of high school graduates reported wasting time at work on a daily basis. Compare that to the 67 percent of respondents with doctorate degrees. Those with PhDs are followed closely by people with bachelor's degrees at 66 percent, and those who have earned master's degrees at 65 percent. 

One reason for the disparity could be that people with college degrees and higher levels of education are generally promoted to managerial and supervisory roles.
