Are you a Power Slacker?

Survey: Workers waste more time than employers expect, costing companies $759 billion a year. More than 10,000 respondents in the online survey admitted to wasting, on average, 2.09 hours per day.

Their top time-wasting activities, they said, were making personal use of the Internet (including email), socializing with colleagues, conducting personal business, spacing out, running errands, making phone calls, applying for jobs, planning personal events, and arriving late or leaving early.
