Time is money. Every minute that ticks on the clock represents dollars - either earned or wasted.
Costs to Business
The typical executive today wastes 150 hours a year, almost one month, searching for lost information. For someone earning $100,000 a year, that translates to a loss of $7,684.
Office workers waste an average of 40% of their work day. Not because they aren't smart, but because they were never taught organizing skills to cope with the increasing workloads and demands according to a Wall Street Journal report. The typical US worker is interrupted by communications technology every 10 minutes (Institute for Future and Gallup).
