How are you dividing your tasks throughout the work day?​


“Describe to me a day-in-the-life of you at your job.” 

This is a question I often pose amongst my peers to get a true image of what their job is like. Most of us have a written job description of the tasks we negotiated before signing our contracts, however this rarely describes exactly what we will be doing on a daily basis. 

Hypersoft conducted a study amongst its OmniContext users to determine the following statistics on work tasks during the week and on the weekend. This data was collected through application use installed on user computers and mobile devices, monitoring productivity in each respective area.

Immediately we see that Communication and Internet related tasks consume the most time on an average work day. The chart above shows that roughly 36% of an average person’s work day is spent doing work using communication applications or tools. With 34% of the work day on the internet or being involved in internet related activities, it is difficult to say if this could be considered productive or not. We would need to take a look at the top visited sites during the work day, as I wrote about in a previous blog. Before reviewing this study I predicted that time spent on Documents would be higher than 11%.

It is not surprising that Internet use drastically increases over the weekend. We would assume that this is more associated to entertainment use more than productivity or work related. I found it interesting that Document related tasks are more than double on the weekend than they are during the week at nearly 27%. What are some of the factors that you think determine these descrepancies?
