Email, Meetings and disruptions take a huge bite out of the typical employees work day. According to an Article published showing statistics gathered by Atlassian the cost is high, usually much higher than outsourcing.
The average employee gets 304 emails weekly. And check email about every 20 minutes. It also takes about 16 minutes for the average Employee to re-focus when they finish.
Unproductive meetings are another waste of time. The average employee spends about 31 hours each month in unproductive meetings. This includes 91% of employees who say they daydream. It is one of many non-productive meeting activities. In addition, meetings also require re-focus time when getting back to work.
The average employee is interrupted 56 times each day. It takes about two hours daily for the employee to recover from these distractions at about 3 minutes per distraction. Eighty percent of interruptions are considered trivial.
In all, no more than 60 percent of work time is productive for the typical employee. Take a look at the article below for more details.
So, if your employee spends time calling, writing, faxing and emailing debtors, their actual productivity is much less than you thought. Their cost, therefore, is much higher.
