Office Distractions Killing Productivity& How To Stop Them

We all know how much distractions we experience in the office. We set our minds to accomplish tasks everyday but in-between distractions pop up that eat into our productive time.

This infographic reveals that the average worker experiences an interruption every 3 minutes or so and that it takes about 23 minutes to return to your original task.. I must confess that my biggest distraction is social media specifically Facebook and Youtube (sounds familiar?).

Other interesting statistics revealed here:

– 70% of employees say meetings dont help them complete work
– 67% of employees say they spend upto 4hrs per week preparing for status update meetings
– 45% of senior executives say their employees would be more productive without meetings
