Time-Wasting at Work Costs Organisations $87 billion per Year

Time-Wasting at Work Costs Organisations $87 billion per Year | Legal Practice Management | Scoop.it

AUSTRALIANS are getting more productive in the workplace but time-wasting still costs organisations $87 billion a year, a new report claims.

 

The average amount of time wasted in the workplace has fallen by 4 per cent since October 2011, the Ernst & Young Australian Productivity Pulse report found.

 

That may not sound like much, but it's not a bad boost considering Australian workplaces have been operating in a declining productivity environment for about 10 years, Ernst & Young managing partner Neil Plumridge says.
