LearnStuff.com recently researched, created and published an interesting infographic on how social media is destroying productivity in the workplace. They write:
“As American students and workers spend more time on the Internet and on social media sites in particular, their levels of productivity are tanking. [...] Every time someone at work gets an IM, a Facebook message or a tweet, it takes them a whopping 23 minutes to get back on task. Taken all together, that costs the American economy $650 billion per year in lost productivity.”
Though the study is for Americans, I would imagine it’s very similar for Canadians and other countries around the globe. Below you’ll find the infographic that LearnStuff has put together with their research. Take a look and answer me this: Do you feel that your employees (or you as an employee) spend too much time on personal social media accounts rather than working, and if so, what do you do about it?”
I’m very interested in hearing your replies!
