(WTNH)- In a survey from OfficeTeam, professionals admit they’re bored in the office an average of 10.5 hours per week. That’s more than a full day a week, or the equivalent of 68 days a year! And 2 in 5 employees (40%) said it’s likely they’d quit their job if they felt bored at work.
While 45% of employees are equally bored throughout the year, another 28% said work is most tedious during the winter. Interestingly, male professionals and those ages 18 to 34 are bored the most per week and are also most likely to leave their position if bored.
Elizabeth Dutkiewicz explains the main reasons employees are bored and some tips for turning things around when you’re disengaged at work.
