Goof Off

Does that sound about right for you?  If so, Good news:  You’re NOT the only person at work who mentally checks out after lunch and counts the seconds until you can leave.

In a new survey, the staffing company Accountemps asked workers when they’re least productive during the day.  And the afternoon DOMINATED.

37% of people said they’re least productive from 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.  Another 28% said it’s 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.  And another 19% said it’s during the lunch zone of noon to 2:00 P.M.

Added up, that means 84% of workers are least productive during some chunk of the afternoon.

The time when people are most productive is from 10:00 A.M. to noon . . . after they’ve settled in, maybe gotten their early morning web surfing and coffee drinking out of the way, and started focusing.  Only 4% said that’s their least-productive time.

And only 10% said that 8:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. is their least productive time.
