… And you didn’t have much time to begin with. We’ve broken it down for you in this infographic: there are 24 hours in a day, doctors recommend we get 8 hours of sleep per night and the typical workday is 8 hours. That leaves 8 hours of free time. Unfortunately for most of the working population, we spend more than the 8 hours at work, get less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep and feel like 24 hours just isn’t enough. For corporate professionals, there are numerous menial tasks that needlessly take up your precious time while in the office. Like 11% of your professional counter parts, it can be as simple as a lack of motivation. You only have 8 hours, so what exactly is occupying the most time while you’re supposed to be on the clock? More importantly, what are you doing to save time at work?
Keep your personal life, personal. Even 20% of CFO’s believe their employees’ greatest time wasters are personal calls and emails. Websites burn more work hours than personal phone calls with 64% of professionals visiting non-work related sites every day. While these are easy things to remove from office hours, there are plenty of work-related time-wasters as well. Overflowing inboxes leave 22% of employees reporting email to be the second biggest waste of work hours. In fact, surveys reveal that one-fourth of the average person’s work-day is spent on email-related tasks. The most corporate time wasted for 37% of employees comes from half of the meetings they honestly don’t need to attend.
