What causes your employees to lose focus?
Daily interruptions, from “Where do I find that one document?” to “Can we brainstorm for a few minutes?” to “Please join us tomorrow for a mandatory training,” require employees to be in a constant state of context switching. Overtime, mental multi-tasking takes its toll and has a significant impact on personal focus and productivity.
In our monthly webinar with the meQuilibrium user community, we asked over 1,200 individuals “What causes you to lose focus?” to better understand what drains employees on a daily basis and where employers can improve support. Uncertainty and Boredom led the list. Take a look.
