Wasted time at work is frustrating, costly issue for both employers and employees, But its’ not an insurmountable problem. It turns out much of the blame can be traced back to a single source. And it’s not social media, which often gets blamed. Instead, the culprit turns out to be the very technology and processes companies put in place to improve their productivity at work. We take a look at what is causing wasted time at work — and what you can do to counteract it.
The study also proposes that “unified communications” (UC) solutions can reduce much of this waste, though it’s difficult to determine by how much.
“Calculating the potential cost savings for a UC implementation is an inexact science at best. Each company has different needs. And UC implementations do not consist of an exact set of components,” the report reads.
Still, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that cloud computing is one way to mitigate certain time sucks. What factors waste your precious time at work? Can they be overcome with better technology? Let us know in the comments.
