Do you know how many minutes you and your team waste every day? I'm not talking about those "Oops, how did I end up on Facebook again?" occasions; I'm talking about the time wasted on inefficient work:
Scouring through email looking for documents
Accidentally using outdated information, causing necessary rework
Waiting for someone to send you the information you need
Answering "Can I ask you a quick question?" desk interruptions
It's estimated that 25% of the average worker's day is wasted on inefficient work. That's huge. If you work an 8-hour day, that's 2 hours wasted every day.
...10 hours per week.
...520 hours per year.
Do the math and you're paying the average worker for 65 days (over three months of work!) of "info gathering" every year. For every employee in your company.
Shocked yet? Read more on the challenges teams and managers are facing in today's workforce in the infographic below:
