Save Time. Schedule Efficiently.
In 2008, Americans were exposed to roughly 33 gigabytes of information each day, per a study conducted by researchers at the University of California San Diego. That’s the equivalent of a 47-hour Netflix streaming binge (I know, sounds like heaven). That number increased to 63 gigabytes of information per day in 2012. So how can we intake more hours of information than the time allotted in a 24-hour period? According to new research by the University of California San Diego, it’s the increase of our multi-tasking behaviors that allows for this bombardment of multiple content streams. Side note – media exposure does not necessarily equate to comprehension of or attention to said media. That same study predicted that by 2015, Americans would be consuming about 15.5 hours of media per day (not accounting for workplace time).
The real question you should ask yourself is how is this impacting your workforce productivity?
According to a 2014 Proactive Time Management & Optimization study conducted by Salary.com, out of the 750 employee respondents, 89% said they waste time at work daily. A quick breakdown from that study:
* 31% waste roughly 30 minutes daily
* 31% waste roughly 1 hour daily
* 16% waste roughly 2 hours daily
* 6% waste roughly 3 hours daily
* 2% waste roughly 4 hours daily
* 2% waste roughly 5 or more hours daily
