This Is What’s Distracting Your Employees from Their Work

Published

on

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.

That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
