Running down the clock at work is common practice for employees worldwide. But what exactly do people do during this idle time?

According to the infographic above, talking ranks as the number one time waster at the office. While internet-related searches not relevant to work comes in second. Technology is partly to blame for this matter, as more and more people are using smartphones.

Furthermore, new mediums for socializing online such as instant messaging apps and games have changed the way people talk and interact with each other. Some businesses have taken matters in their own hands by implementing software that blocks unproductive websites and apps.

As the popular saying goes, “When there’s a will, there’s a way,” and eventually employees will find a way around tight company policies.
