Would you say you’re more productive in the morning, or the afternoon? If you said afternoon, you’re an outlier. At least according to this. A poll found the average office worker is most productive at 10:22 A.M., and then it’s all downhill from there.
We hit our first big slump at 1:27 P.M., and then another one on top of it at 2:06. It also found we tend to feel the most drained on Mondays and Fridays.
The top things that can drain us in a typical workday are too much time in front of a computer, getting interrupted by colleagues, and not taking breaks.
In general, 38% said they feel more productive working in an office, while 22% feel like they get more done working from home. Everyone else said no big difference either way, apparently.
Noise levels and not being able to control the thermostat were two things we don’t like about being in an office. So what’s the BEST part? Two-thirds agreed it’s being around coworkers. And the best part about working from home? Every day is pants-optional.
