Employees Spend Half Their Days Doing Nothing

By Gerard @presurfer
Does it often seem like you spend your whole day working, but get nothing done? Well, you're not imagining it. A new survey confirms it - you really are accomplishing nothing. Employees at small and midsize businesses spend 50 percent of their day on 'necessary, yet unproductive' tasks like filing, communications and dealing with correspondence.
