Business Productivity Statistics

From the May 18, 2011 edition of USAToday.  This information comes from a survey conducted by software company Harmon.

  • More than half of U.S. workers waste an hour or more a day on interruptions: 60% come from electronic devices and e-mails, while the other 40% come from traditional sources, such as phone calls or chats with colleagues.
  • 45% of workers say they can’t go more than 15 minutes, on average, without an interruption. 
  • The average worker wastes 2.5 hours a week looking for documents missing in poorly organized electronic files.
  • Only 68% of people always turn their phones off at the movies. 
  • Almost two-thirds will tune out of meetings to read e-mails, tweet or take mobile phone calls.  Half leave devices on at least sometimes when they go to bed.
  • Distractions cost businesses $10,790 a year per worker.
