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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
