Workers only 57 percent productive
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 Microsofts
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
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.
