According to new research, Australian employees are time wasters – however, workers in one state are bucking the trend. Should HR head south to recruit top talent?

    Its hardly fair to call workers "bludgers" when the reasons they're unproductive include 'tech problems, waiting for approval from a higher authority, and reading and responding to emails'. Plus who says that reading and responding to emails is not productive work? Is answering internal and external customers questions via email less productive than via phone or face to face? I would assume it is MORE productive, as I can send the email when I'm ready, whether that be 11pm or 7:30am, and not have to wait until an appropriate time to phone or until the scheduled meeting time.
