Is your biggest time waster: texting? surfing the web? chatting with co-workers? A new CareerBuilder study reveals behaviors that employers say are the biggest productivity killers in the workplace.
Personal use of technology is one of the leading culprits. One in four workers spends at least one hour a day on personal calls, emails or texts. And 21% spend one hour or more during a typical workday searching the Internet on nonwork-related information.
The top 10 productivity killers:
Cell phone/texting 50%
Social media 38%
Snack or smoke breaks 27%
Noisy co-workers 24%
Co-workers dropping by 23%
Co-workers on speakerphone 10%
