This Is What’s Distracting Your Employees from Their Work



You pay your employees for a full day’s work, but sometimes you get … less than that.

As they go about their daily tasks, your staff members can have their attention whisked away by any number of distractions.

So as part of the 2016 Big Survey, we asked INSTORE readers to identify the biggest thief of their staff’s time.

The clear winner: non-work-related use of social media. That’s the answer chosen by 50 percent of the question’s 440 respondents.

Other popular answers included personal phone calls, minor health issues and lateness to work.

Full results of the 10th annual Big Survey will appear in the October issue of INSTORE.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
