Office spaces

This isn't so much an office annoyance as it is a "things too true about office workers":
  • In an 8-hour day, most people get roughly 5 hours of work done.
  • Human Resources assumes that 0.94 hours are being wasted a day but suspect that 1.6 hours are being wasted meaning they are only half aware of all the time being wasted.
  • The older you are, the less time you waste at work. On average, the highest time wasters are 18-24 years old.
  • 39% of 18-24 year olds said they would quit their jobs if Facebook was banned.
  • Cited distractions at work: 44% spent web surfing (I'm sure Pinterest is 43% of that), 23.4% socializing with co-workers, 3.9% spacing out, 1.3% applying for other jobs.
  • 65% of YouTube viewers watch between the hours of 9 -5 Monday through Friday.
  • 77% of workers who have a Facebook account use it at work.
  • An estimated $759 billion is the total salary cost for the time that employees waste at work.
Well on that note I guess I better get back to work.... or Pinning. Such a dilemma...
