acp_7-19-2016.pngMore than half of employers blame cell phones and texting for less-than-ideal productivity in the workplace — but a recent CareerBuilder survey revealed portable devices are just part of the problem.

Employers also cited the Internet (41 percent), gossip (39 percent), social media (37 percent) and co-workers stopping by to converse (27 percent) as major in-office distractions.

Twenty-seven percent of employers also named smoking and/or snack breaks as a major drain on employee productivity.

Find out what other pastimes (such as making paper clip chain cubicle decor) the survey found have affected employee productivity in the workplace in CareerBuilder’s recent press release on the topic.
