What hinders your productivity at work the most? According to a SurveyMonkey poll, it’s chatty co-workers. 45 percent of respondents said distractions from co-workers keep them from getting more done at work. And you can blame open floor plans, which some 70 percent of American companies have adopted, for a lot of that.
Honestly, this isn't a problem for me...I sit in a room by myself for 5 hours a day with very little interaction with co-workers. Just sayin'.
I really figured the internet and social media would be the biggest distractions.
