How Many Hours a Week Are You Actually Productive?

January 27, 2017

The average person is at work for 44 hours a week, according to a new survey.  But that definitely does NOT mean they're putting in 44 hours of productivity.

The average person says they're only productive at work for 29 hours a week . . . or a little under six hours a day.  It also means we spend more than a third of our time at work just kinda messing around.

So why aren't we productive?  The top four reasons are:  Coworkers bothering us, too many meetings, getting distracted by our phones, and issues with office equipment.

And the four things that help increase our productivity are:  Cutting back on meetings, having more quiet places to work, flexible schedules, and having technology that's up-to-date.
