People spend an average of an hour per day on personal business while at the office!  In fact, three out of 10 employees say they spend more time doing personal tasks than actual work.  The most popular non-work distractions include banking and bill-paying, checking the weather forecast, reading personal emails, browsing news sites, online shopping and checking in with social networks.  Fortunately, about 40% of workers wait until a quiet moment at the office to deal with personal matters, although nearly a fifth have gotten behind or missed a deadline because they were busy doing something other than work. While more than 20% say they have no choice but to do personal tasks during the workday (since they don’t have time in the evenings), another 20% admit they do it because they’re bored.
