Productivity killers

Susan Ricker, CareerBuilder, says many things can interrupt work, waste time, and cut your effectiveness.

Most employers don't expect you to be a stern robot, but they do know certain things can really throw you off.

First--your phone. Followed by the internet. Gossip. Email. Meetings. Chatty coworkers.

A third of employers have blocked certain internet sites, for example. Twenty-three have banned person cellphone use.

They schedule lunch and break times.

Monitor emails and internet use.

Limit meetings.

Allow telecommuting.

Have an open space, no cubicles.

You can do things, too...

Schedule play breaks.

Surround yourself with serious, productive people if you can.

Go on Facebook and say I am going to do this--and do it.

Go for a 10 minute walk to reset your brain,

Still, employees have been caught

Taking a spongebath in the bathroom (it's only CALLED a bathroom).

Hypnotizing other employees to help them stop smoking.

Getting a tan in a tanning bed while out.

Drinking and watching Netflix.

Sleeping on the CEO's couch.

Posting inappropriate pix--you know what I mean.

Flying drones inside the office.

All in one office? I want to work there!

Kidding, kidding.
