Workers only 57 percent productive

According to a recent survey conducted by Microsoft, workers on an average have only three productive days per week. In the case of India, the workers found only 57 percent of their work hours productive.

The assessment developed by Microsoft called Microsoft’s Office Personal Productivity Challenge (PPC) aims to help workers evaluate their work habits and receive tips on how to be more productive in their day-to-day activities.

The company received responses through the online survey from more than 38,000 people in 200 countries. Here are some of the findings.

People worked an average of 45 hours a week. They considered about 17 of those hours to be unproductive. 55 percent of the people said they relate their productivity directly to their software.

Unclear objectives, lack of team communication, and ineffective meetings are among the top time-wasters that workers around the world blame for making them feel unproductive.
