The average person is at work for 44 hours a week, according to a new survey. But that definitely does NOT mean they’re putting in 44 hours of productivity.
The average person says they’re only productive at work for 29 hours a week . . . or a little under six hours a day. It also means we spend more than a third of our time at work just kinda messing around.
So why aren’t we productive? The top four reasons are: Coworkers bothering us . . . too many meetings . . . getting distracted by our phones . . . and issues with office equipment.
And the four things that help increase our productivity are: Cutting back on meetings . . . having more quiet places to work . . . flexible schedules . . . and having technology that’s up-to-date.
