The Unseen Time Wasters at Work

Research says we have about 56 interruptions at work in 1 day. It takes 3 minutes to switch between tasks and it takes 2 hrs to recover from the distraction. On an average business day we receive 306 emails, we check our emails 36 times in an hour and it takes 16 minutes to refocus after handling an email. After this, the only time left which would be less than 40% of the day, would be spent on work. Time spent in office is rarely proportional to time spent on work. Take a look at these infographics to understand the unseen time wasters at work.
