A survey showed that full-time workers feel that they are productive for only about 28 hours of each work week, on average. Another survey showed that many executives believe that their employees are working at only 60 to 65% capacity. There are several reasons why so many full-time workers are not as productive as they could be, including unclear goals, inefficient processes and pointless meetings.
More about work productivity:
- An international survey of workers revealed that employees receive an average of 42 emails per day.
- In the US, male full-time workers work an average of 8.3 hours per day, and women who are employed full-time work 7.8 hours a day.
- There are many time management techniques and tools available, but only about one-third of all workers use one of these systems.
