10 factors for reduced productivity
(With Permission from the English Blog SurePayroll)
Increasing productivity has become a near obsession for many workers. Partly because there are so many obstacles in our way – social media, meetings, annoying co-workers, cell phones, etc. How can we get rid of these factors for reduced productivity?
All these things cost us time and keep us from getting stuff done, but perhaps more important to employers, they’re hitting the bottom line:
Employers lose an estimated $1.8 trillion in lost productivity each year because of lack of engagement with the job, parents stressed over the cost of child care, hangovers, chronic health problems and more.
So what are business owners and employees to do? Read our infographic below to get a full understanding of how we’re being impacted by productivity prohibitors, and find out what we can do to stop them.

Several of the listed productivity blockers can be caused by poor IT-infrastructur for collaboration, datamanagement and dataexchange.
It is a pity that we do not have an infographic that proves by statistics how many calls, E-Mails, chats or direct interruptions through colleagues happen every day simply to ask for information that a user should have instant access to but could not find due to a lack of IT-software support.
I would find it very interesting to see such a statistic of companies before and after the invention of meaningful and modern processes and IT.
