about this ebook

Workplace productivity had a weird year in 2020, but overall trends aren’t very surprising. 82% of employees started the year working at the office, which then shifted to 59% working from home and only 27% still in the office after the pandemic struck. Most people who responded to the survey report no change to their productivity. But interestingly, the key finding is that most workers are losing 1-3 hours a day to distractions, with women and older respondents feeling least in control of their tasks. Only 13% of people reported they could work undisturbed for 2 hours or more, and only 18% reported working on one task at a time.

What we loved:

How easy it is to digest the data

What we didn't love:

The lack of actionability/next steps

Summary:

This free ebook on the state of productivity in 2021 made us think twice about our multitasking habits (yes, we're guilty of doing other things during calls) in an easy-to-digest infographic-style. It also posed a lot of deep questions (what could we accomplish if we weren't so distracted?)

Unfortunately, the book didn't offer a lot of answers or actionable advice.

Still, during a year in which multitasking became even more prevalent, this ebook managed to dole out some surprising statistics on how distracted we really are. Give it a read, preferably not while doing something else.
