Did you know that on average, a typical American worker wastes around 1.7 hours of work time per day and that employers end up paying $759 billion per year because of this? Hit the jump for more stats on slacking.

  1. Since when was Missouri next to Alabama? It looks like the map-maker was doing a little slacking with his "M" states.

      • Representing Nevada to say I'm one of those raising the average. (Of course my lack of work could be due to the entire upper echelon of this family owned business running off to Europe for a destination wedding then wondering why loyalty and moral are at an all-time low despite not giving any raises in the last year)

  3. Saying that 759B is paid for work that isn't actually performed is a very skewed affirmation. This urges small-minded managers to try to make their employees work more.

    Instead of working more, why not work better?

    Much more time is wasted in doing unnecessary work, than "slacking".

    The infograph looks cute, but the implicit idea is ridiculously misguided.

  5. I need to review the citations to see where these statistics came from. I work for one of the nations top 5 insurance carriers, and I have relatives that work for 2 others. Each of us have every minute of every day monitored, we have a dozen statistics we are responsible for that track our progress. I'm either working my entire 8 hours, or not there, and so are the other 1000 people in my building. 2.5 hours wasted on average, please. I need to find who these carriers are and jump ship immediately…or these statistics were entirely made up.
