Workers Can't Seem to Get It Done at Work

Christopher Robbins/Photodisc(NEW YORK) -- Much to supervisors' dismay the workplace isn’t all too conducive to getting things done, a survey by the professional social networking site LinkedIn reveals.

In fact, nearly nine of ten professionals in the worldwide survey say they can’t finish everything on their daily to-do list. One of the problems, according to 26 percent of the respondents, is that they’re too easily distracted, with those in the arts admitting they find it hardest to concentrate on their tasks at hand.  Folks in the agriculture industry claim they have the least difficulty focusing.

In fact, farmers are tops when it comes to completing their daily jobs, with consumer and service workers not far behind. Legal, education and medical employees say they struggle the most to finish their work.

As for making actual to-do lists, it’s probably no surprise that women are more organized than men, with 70 percent claiming to set up task sheets as opposed to 60 percent of males.
