Even when people appear to be working hard, studies indicate that the average worker still wastes a lot of time on the job. Some of the waste comes through the use of the Internet and social media, and cell phones and text messages also take a toll. Joe Hruska is the founder and CEO of Rescuetime, a company that produces software designed to monitor how a worker uses their computer during a typical day. Hruska says expecting 8 real hours of productivity from an employee is expecting a lot. He admits productivity is not only about saving time or eliminating distractions. When workplaces use more computers and Web based interaction, coordinating within the office often becomes more complicated. Hruska says he has found that, at best, a worker is productive about five hours a day. Knowing where the time goes helps but a big challenge remains staying motivated.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
