8 Biggest Time Sucks at Work
“Below are the eight biggest time sucks at work, according to Tim Eisenhauer, a tech entrepreneur with more than 15 years of work experience and the co-founder of a company called Axero Solutions. Axero (which doesn’t have offices, workspaces, or weekly meetings) provides companies with a social collaboration platform that’s said to be more effective than email and traditional intranets.

EISENHAUER: People checking Facebook and watching YouTube while at work is probably the biggest time suck on this list. Yes, some people need to do this stuff for their job, but everyone’s doing it (not just the people who do it as part of their job). Solutions to this issue would be appealing to intrinsic motivators. Most often this is a management issue. Do people feel as if they’re doing something valuable for the company? Do they like their job?
