Infographic: Wasted time at work

Time management tips that can save your life (at least your job)

Most HR leaders and staffing managers are highly productive people at work because there is always so much to do and seemingly so little time to get it all done. This is why it can be so frustrating when we think others are wasting time.

With the emergence of social media, smart phones and apps, it’s easy to speculate that these contribute greatly to lost or wasted time in the work place, but are these really the primary culprits, and if not, then why aren’t more people being more productive?

Rypple (now has created an infographic that analyzes wasted time in the work place. The infographic states that 50% of the time is wasted:

Trying to contact people
Trying to find information
Scheduling meetings
Duplicating information
Dealing with unwanted information
The infographic makes some recommendations on how to stop the time drain and increase productivity. Drawing from their reasons for wasted time, we have authored an eBook called “Your Personal Time Machine,” which promotes ten features built into our technology platform that can help HR departments and staffing teams save time (several hours per month) and speed up time-to-hire (or time-to-place), increasing overall productivity at work and profitability for your company.
