An annual survey on time-wasting at work has revealed that more employees are wasting time on a daily basis this year than last year. Time to panic?

    Maybe we're not slacking more, maybe we're just being more honest?

    We should also take into consideration that this article does not equate taking this extra time with being less productive. I find that I am able to be more productive if I take "mental health breaks" every now and then throughout the day. "Time-wasting" can result in more productive staff - just ask Google!

    I find these results dubious. Taking a mental break as Heidi put itis not wasting time. On the other hand, just becasue someone is busy, doesn't ncessarily mean they are being productive.
