The headline from Salary.com’s annual Wasting Time at Work Survey is that time wasting is up more than 5% from last year. In 2013, 70% of the 1000+ survey respondents admitted wasting time at work on a daily basis versus 64% in 2012. The time wasted ranged from 30 minutes to several hours each day. If the trend continues (and respondents continue to fess-up to their shortcomings) the percentage of time-wasting workers (AKA non-working time-wasters) could conceivably top 100% by the end of the decade.
Here are a few of the 2013 survey highlights:
How much time do you waste per day?
How do you waste time at work?
Which site do you visit the most during the workday?
What is the biggest distraction in your workplace?
