Do you lose valuable time at work due to disorganization? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent survey conducted by Express Employment Professionals, 51% of business leaders who responded said they lose up to nine hours a week due to desk or office clutter. To put that into perspective, a manager with a salary of $50,000 could be costing their company over $11,000 per year due to disorganization.
Now that we are past the recession, businesses are rebuilding their workforces and new work is piling up. According to the Express survey, 55% of companies do not train their leaders on how to manage increased workloads. During this tense economic time, it’s vital for company leaders to play an active role in ensuring their business stays productive as it continues to recover and grow.
